    I'm looking for a way to have more things to customize when shareing a Folder on a Network.
    I need to password protect my shared folders so only the correct users can open them. I also would like other options. Windows XP Pro currently doesnt seems to have a whole lot of options when it comes to Network Folder shareing.. so what are some good programs?
    ehh Windows Server 2003 is kinda like: useing a Crane to lift a few 15Ib boxes.
    I just need something for your everyday file shareing on a network. (lol not kazaa.. My Network )

    You may want to try turning "off" simple file sharing in xp under folder options . That allows you to better customize the file permissions with the security tab even if you share them on a network.
