How do I set up sharing a folder and creating user accounts who can access my computer over a network please? Or even just typing in my password to access the documents. I am using xp professional and have a password set to log in to windows.


Kind Regards.

And what version of Windows do the other computers have? XP? 98?

And how many computers in the network??

To share a folder, highlight it / right mouse button, properties/sharing and enable file sharing.

Its on a large network.

I would like to be able to access my files from another computer via a password.

Kind Regards.

How large is large?? more than 20-50?

Are any of the computers running server software?? Is this in a company or a house??

If a company, unless youre the person who deals with the network, I doubt you'll be able to do it without asking whoever deals with it.
