    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 ...

    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).
