Do you want the laptop to be password protected or the internet access?

If internet you can password protect or not, but just one computer I dont think so.

sounds like computer password access


BUT... to continue with the possibility of password protecting 1 laptop from the internet ...

I think you could manipulate the mac security to prompt for password. Wonder if it's functionally possible...

OR... I bet you could make 1 of the laptops prompt for a password just to use "Internet Explorer" or whatever browser you use - depending on the os.


*just thoughts*

A few questions....

We know there are 3 devices How many users are there and on which systems are they logging on

What is the user level of all users involved

Do you want a single user to have access to all devices or should each device have its own admin user?

If you can let us know details of your requirements it should be possible to design a security model to suit

device 1:4 users all administrators(person a,b,c,d)
devise 2:1 administrator(person e)
device 3(one i want to be passworded):1 administrator(person f)

Do you want a single user to have access to all devices or should each device have its own admin user?

i want the documents on devise 3 to only be seen by person a

If you create an account on device 3 for user a and share the documents folder using the advanced sharing option, including file permissions, that will give them access, it will ask for credentials for the first logon but will not after this. The additional user on the device 3 is a requirement of workgroup networking

The major problem with your set-up is that you have all your users as administrators in a peer to peer system (workgroup) the local administrator has the ability to change any settings made by any other administrator. this would mean that as an administrator, person f would also be able to reset permissions on the folder to gain access.

The only way to fully secure this system would be to have the other users as standard users who would be unable to access the permissions

You would have one system administrator for the whole system, with an account on all devices, who could then assign permissions for access of the other users to all files.
