Windows 7: sharing folder between computers with same login...

sharing folder between computers with same login...

Hi. I have two windows 7 PC which I use the same login. Why two computers? Even though they have virtually the same configuration, one would run drivers for some of my target boards while the other won't.

These two PCs are on the same domain network. They simply have different computer name assigned to them (computer1 and computer2 both on Domain network)

How do I share a folder from computer1 with computer2? I don't want to put this folder on a network drive so that everyone can access it. I just want computer2 to see this folder, from computer1.

Please advise.

Right click on the folder you want to share and select "Share With". Set up the permissions from there.

Hi there,

If these computers are part of your domain you should have your Network Admin or IT Dept
do this task. It's proper to do this way.
