    I have a wireless network between two computers. Simple File Sharing is
    turned off on both machines.

    The client computer named "LIL" has 3 users named James, Karriem and Lilian.

    What I want to do is only allow Lilian access to the host from the client

    Here's what I've done:

    1. Selected Sharing and Security for drive C:
    2. Enabled "Share this folder"
    3. Clicked "Permissions"
    4. Under "Share Permissions" Group or user names: I clicked the "Add" button
    5. Under "Select Users or Groups" I click "Advanced" button
    6. I clicked "Find Now" button

    At this point I see a long list like:

    Name [RDN] In Folder
    Administrators SEDSSERVER
    Anonymous Logon
    Authenticated Users
    Backup Operators SEDSSERVER
    Sedgrick SEDSSERVER

    The client computer LIL does not appear in the list. I can share files
    between computers only if I leave sharing in the default "Everyone" state.
    That means anyone logging into the client will be able to access the host

    How can I control who gets to log onto the host from the client?

    I found that the answer to my question lies in my file system which needs to
    be NTFS.
