Individual user settings for remote access to shared folders and computers. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to set up a user's remote access so that they can access the shared folders but not remotely log in to PC's? At the same time I would require that one user should be able to do both.

    Example:

    User1 - allowed to access shared folders and computers

    User2 - allowed to access shared folders only.

    This would allow me to let the kids access their files without them interfering with each others computers, and I would still be able to access all areas.

  • I do not believe that is possible at the moment.  You can fill out a suggestion on connect and request that feature.

  • When you connect to WHS using remote access and then access a computer on your home net, you have to supply a user name and password for that computer.  That should allow you to control who can access each computer.

  • You will find such a suggestion here on Connect, for the computers tab, and here for the folders.

    In the meantime, I'll point out that even if a user selects a computer for RD access, they still need the user name and password of an account on that computer that's allowed to log in remotely. A simple workaround is to make sure that the user doesn't have such an account available.

  • This is a great idea. 

    If I give a friend access to my shared folders that is all I want them to see.  They should not be able to see the other tabs.
