Re: accessing shared Win7 folders from XP
said by aurgathor:Sure, but that's not the way it works, and a good thing too, since it would mean that any firewall failure would result in total access to all computers.
Since I have a wired network behind a separate PC acting as a firewall/router (Freesco) that either requires physical access to my network, or a beyond average hacking skill.
Basically, any standalone computer trusts only those usernames that it defines. If you add the computer to a domain, then it will also trust those usernames that the domain controller defines.
