Windows 7: Network Sharing Permissions

04 Feb 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate

There has to be someone on here who knows what they are talking about. First of all when you are connected to a homegroup your connected to those computers no matter what, It dosnt matter what workgroup you are in. Second "specific people" meaning a specific user on the local machine not on the homegroup. You can set a permission for "everyone" but that applies to the whole network not a specific computer. To set a permission for a specific computer the location to be searched has to be changed from the local machine (which is the only option in permissions window) to a machine on the network. Thanks for the replies but if you dont know what you are talking about then save me time and dont post!!!

copied this from another post it may help. essentially you should be able to create a second homegroup. I have not tried myself but it may help.

Go to Network and Sharing center. Change network type from Home to Public. Click Close.

Click "Change Advanced sharing settings". Click OK or Cancel

Change network type back to "Home" and then press Next. It should create a new Homegroup automatically
Multiple Homegroups?

This only worked for that guys because someone elts on his network already created a homegroup. He wasnt a part of the homegroup him self. He wasnt acually connected to 2 homegroups. Did you not see my last post?
