How can we segment a piece of our Windows network so users from the same subnet can not access it but people on that side of the network and a different subnet can. Currently they can communicate freely between each other.

Your best option is to do some type of access control list (ACL) on the router or switch between the two subnets. In effect this is like creating a firewall rule blocking traffic between the subnets.

    ...access control list (ACL)... Maybe I'm misunderstanding the question, but I'm not sure how that would affect the users who are already on the same side of the router|switch as the designated device. users from the same subnet can not access it but people on that side of the network and a different subnet can Seems like an odd relationship.

    Segmenting at its most basic level is the process of separating certain portions of network traffic, either for performance, security, or reliability reasons, which the q. It can use a bridge, a switch, or a router to separate network's devices into segments. Before doing it needs the right tools to understand the traffic that travels across the network.
