My Super User question is getting zero attention. Nary an answer, let alone a comment. So, perhaps I should look for an app, rather than an o/s based solution.
I had a home setup - one desktop PC used as file server, 2 laptops. The laptops should be able to read/write the desktop's NTFS drives, but not each other's; nor should the server have access to the laptops.
Until now, I have gotten by with a Windows workgroup, but that no longer works since upgrading to Windows 10. I have spent a month trying to get it to work and have no further interest in pursuing that avenue.
I am looking for a well tested, simple to set up solution to allow sharing as stated above. I have a strong preference for no form of logins/passwords being necessary.
Can anyone suggest a free app? I don't mind some initial configuration hassle, so long as it is well documented and then set & forget.
