I am wondering, is there a way to host a local userlist so User-level sharing can be used on files and possibly this list could be shared like NT does.
If there currently is nothing that does this can one be made, how does the communication start, what format does the list travel, would it have to be a dll/extencion (like kex) or could it be a program/deamon if it were easyer to make (I have limated skills in vb/vb.net)
Thanks for the information,
Ok, Maybe it will help if I try to put something on the table.
OK after searching the registry I found that HKLM/network/security has a key called provider. In this key it has msad.dll. I assume this is what deals, or at least 'should' deal with username requests however I don't think it works. I tried getting a packet sniffer to run but this caused me a lot of hasstle, a the one I chose led me round in circles to find one that ran, i.e. it said download an earlyer version which then said it was corrupt.
Can someone help me?
Oh, I also found out that I can add names to the list without clicking add and by using the registry. In the same kay there is a key called shares or something (right above) which breaks down to Admin and anything shared.
If you type a username as a string here it will appear in the properties menu for said shared folder. However I have inconclusive evidance this workes because although I added the uswername of the user on my other computer it said Authorisation Failed, even with the computername/username or even just the computername (Same as workgroup)...
I am going to try and make both user level to see if this works.
