Disable File Sharing Between Domain/Workgroup

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Haggy Shanakiev, Oct 20, 2005.

  1. Hi everybody,

    Our Customer sometimes create a share folder on his laptop and copy a
    file from our Desktop/PC, that is breaking our Company rule.

    Is it posible to set a policy for a user from Active Directory Domain,
    so he/she cannot copy/view a share folder (even when those share folder
    is shared to "Everyone") from another Active Directory Domain or Workgroup ?

    Thanks In Advance

  2. No - that is what Everyone is for :).

    What you could do is instead of Everyone group you could use "Authenticated
    Users" group or "Domain Users" group which would allow only access to users
    that have valid user account in your domain.

  3. Thanks for Reply,

    But what i need is to restrict our internal domain user, So if another
    user whose using laptop share his folder, nobody in my internal domain
    able to copy their file to the laptop.

  4. That will be even harder. That is something you would have to solve on few
    other "layers".
    - first would be company policy and users would have to be aware of it --
    and what are consequences
    - even if you would disable this -- what users would probably do then is
    e-mail documents to others or use CDs or USB drives...

    One solution would be to use RMS (Windows Rights Management Service) --
    where you can set who can read the document. This way even if internal users
    manage to copy files to non-company computers -- owners of these computers
    would not be able to read these documents.

    Here is more information on RMS
