I have 3 PC's on LAN running XP pro..all hv few shared folders on network and any of us can use any of that folder..(using simple file sharing)..
All are getting connected to ZXDSL 531B modem and are sharing internet B/B connection through that only..
If sum guests visit and want to use internet he can get access to dat, which we hv no problem for that.. but the problem is dat he can also get access to our internal network and can share those shared files/folders very easily, dat i dont want..
how can we restrict other users/guests on other PC's/laptops (except 3 of us).. so that they can only use internet but cannot use those shared folders..
Plz. help me out regarding this issue..
I dont want to use any server, win 2003 serv., or dont want to create domain..i can only use the available resources i.e. win xp pro..
Plz. guide me thorougly..
thanks in advance..

create some users, they have to be the same on all machines, and have the same passwords
set up permissions per user
create users for internet use only - deny them the permissions
