6 XP pro computers have to access a share on a 7th XP pro computer all with
advanced file sharing. Which method is more secure?

On the 6 machines create 6 accounts. On the 7 th machine create the same 6
accounts then add them to the permissions share on the 7th machine.


Or create a single account on the 7th machine and add it to the share
permission . On the 6 other machines that access this share on the 7th
machine have a netuse authentication script.bat run at start up with the
username and password authenticating??

I'm just wondering if the first idea is better, because th 6 machines will
be running limited accounts and getting *.bat to run at startup will be hard
cos cmd prompt access is disabled ...

Re: Which Is More Secure???

I'd say 6 accounts would be better because it provides accountability
in the event that someone does something that they shouldn't (assuming
you turn up your security logs).
