Password protection

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?U3RldmU=?=, Jan 19, 2007.

  1. There are 4 machines wirelessly networked. My brother has 2 running Linux
    and I have 2 running XP. He can easily restrict me from accessing his
    machines but for the life of me I can't see how I can do the same in XP to
    only allow my own 2 machines to access each other by password protection.

    Can anybody help please?

    In addition if you have additional Software Firewall on each computer, you
    can ban his IPs form accessing your computers.
