I got myself a little delima here.  Before I re-installed windows xp professional on my desktop machine, I was able to access c:\documents and settings\user\ across the network while keeping its permissions as private for the desktop and allow user x from the  laptop machine access.

I cannot seem to find the area to set permissions on this folder.
I right clicked it and went to properties but there is no security tab.

I need some help here, if theres any technological geniuses out there who could lend me some help i'd love it greatly!

Is your user name registered as an administrator on the computer you are trying to access over the network?

Might be that you have Simple file Sharing selected.  I just turned it on and lost my security tab, switched it back off and and the security tab came back.

If you don't already know, tools/folder options, deselect simple file sharing.

Hope this helps.

Got one more problem :)

I finally got my Shared Documents shared via security.

Now how do I share a documents and settings user's folder :?!

Wheres the option so that when I double click this folder via the network it pop's up w/ a login to authenticate me?

Under the sharing tab, there is a permissions button.  Have you tried that??  Should be able to select what perms a user has and maybe it forces the login.

I actually haven't tried this myself but that seems like a starting point.  If I had a LAN to try this on I would but the new PC is a few weeks away.

Try using 'computer name/username' when you add the user from the other PC.  Otherwise you can probably search for all users in the network.  I did this on a VPN sort of thing once, added my friends user name from his PC.  Don't remember if that actually worked though...

Had a quick look, might be able to select the PC to search for user accounts on.

Clicking Location gives me the "desktop" but does not branch out to the other comps

A: have you set up the user to be shared?

just in case, and for anyone else....

goto

x:\Documents and Settings
assuming you want to share the users folder...
right-click on the folder ... e.g. god
click sharing and security
tick share this folder on network
give it a name i.e. god
tick allow users to modify files

and it should show up in network places as a folder. (If it doesnt, HINT: re-start, and disable firewall! and then load up network places, see if it appears) ...
