Windows 7: Sharing through an unjoined domain

06 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x86
Sharing through an unjoined domain

So, at my school i want to plug my laptop in and allow clients to get files from a windows file share. The clients are part of a domain that I'm not allowed to join. I have chosen to allow "Everyone" from my own computer (all that i can add for access rights) to have read only access to the share. they can access my computer, they just cant access the share (access denied).

how can i allow ANYONE who is a part of the domain that I'm not a part of to access the share?

or is this some kind of "security risk" that has been taken into consideration by micro$oft?

Hi skibbli,

You have mentioned this:

You should consult the School's IT people regarding your issue.
