  1. What is the easiest way to set up a list of rules ether allowing or denying access to certain folders on a shared network drive. There are about 8 people I need to set permissions for one shared drive, what is the easiest way to set up some simple allow/deny rules?

    start at the entry point of the access; Network Security.

    If you can predict or arrange that trusted users come from lan addresses xxx.yyy.ttt.x
    and untrusted from xxx.yyy.uuu.x, then the firewall can allow ports 139,145 from ONLY

    There are variations on this theme; untrusted users having ip addresses above
    some arbitrary value, say > xxx.yyy.zzz.128 (but not including zzz.255!)

    Going to security by folder per user will required ACL manipulation on the Share
    AND if there's a large number of users to permit, this could impact performance.
