I've got a small office with 5 workstations, all running XP Pro. All networked toghether on a WorkGroup, hardwired, but do have a secure wireless connection as well for when i bring my laptop in and when clients come over. One workstaiton is dedicated as the "server" as it has a bunch of shared drives and folders within, and most of the peripherals haning off it (a few printers, etc.) I also have interns and temps coming over on occassion who do NOT need regular file/printer/resource access on the network, but do need to offer them internet access - those are my concern. It would be great to offer them "restricted" file/resource access, however. Question is, can I secure certain (or all) of the shared folders/drives from others? Is there a way to password protect any of the shared drives/directories? That would be ideal, as i could set pw's for certain areas, but still allow resource access, and let them into certain areas if warranted (that sounds more like true server config, huh?) Or, can i lock certain workstations out of the "network" but keep them on the internet? Firewall? I was toying around with Norton Internet Security - Personal Firewall, and restricting access, etc. but i couldn't seem to get all the config right - it either blocked all traffic, or none, regardless of "Trusts" and other config items.) Is there a hardware solution that could simply allow internet access, but keep out of the rest of the network? Or maybe a network config solution on the users end (manually setting up IP/DNS etc when they connect to the netowrk -maybe to a specific blocked section on the router?) This would allow internet access, but NO access to the LAN. That's least ideal as i would NOT have any option for them to access, but if that's the minimum, tha would have to do for now?
