I have a several computers on a small network. These computers are shared with several users of that network. There is one computer that acts as a file server. It has shared folders in C:\ & D:\ drives that are shared with all computers on the network. They all run on windows XP Pro.

Is it possible to password protect the shared folders on the file server? What i really want is once user try to gain access to the shared folder on the file server he or she will have to supply a password. I’m talking about across the network, not on the local computer.
