Network Layout We have 26 branch offices connected back to headoffice via VPN. We run a single Windows 2000 domain with DC's at each branch. Branch employees logon to systems using a common username/password due to the change in staff and shift work. Users want to securely store their documents on the branch server. Is there anyway to do this...I have tried NTFS security on the files, but since the user is logged on using the common account, they get Access Denied of course...is their any way to prompt for user/password on branch server share?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s possible, but likely rests on the configuration of your VPN. It’s it an SSL-based solution or PPTP, or is it something lower-level, like a LAN Extension-type product?

    The server to be accessed is at local branch. I think there's no VPN issue here. How about creating a new common ID for those who need to access the server (for security reason), then configure the resource permission on the DC?
