I want to be able to give others access to my files.
In the case of a point-to-point connection, the computer name and the designa-
tion of the workgroup of the external computer is random.
To determine or set the computer name and the workgroup, select the tab:
Computer name: <COMPUTER NAME>
In order to share access to the drive/directory or determine the sharing name,
start the Windows Explorer on the external computer and select the drive/direc-
tory to be released for shared access for the PCU.
The access control is set in the Windows Explorer in the tab: "Access control"
of the Properties dialog of a drive/directory. If the tab: "Access control" is not
displayed, the computer is or was part of a Domain network and the system
administration has switched off the tab display for safety reasons.
In order to be able to make the settings required for the point-to-point connec-
tion, the tab must be unhidden. This can be done using the program "pole-
dit.exe". Poledit.exe is to be found on the Win9x CD under: admin\app-
tools\poledit or available for free download under http://www.microsoft.com/win-

rectory and define the sharing name and the access rights.
