Hi all,

I've got 2 PC's which are in the same workgroup. I would like to be able to
access each computer from the other without having to share all
drives/directories. I've got a feeling that this isn't a safe option,
especially when connected to the internet.

So I thought if I add the administrator from PC1 to the Administrators group
on PC2 that I should be able to access the drives. However I can't add a
user from PC1 to a group on PC2, it doesn't understand the user's location
and I cannot set the location to the other PC.

Can anyone give me pointers or help me out?

TIA,
Friso Wiskerke
