Options - Access Control

Description

 

The Access Control section allows you to restrict access to certain resources shared by the server. In other words, access control defines what can be done to your machine when someone else is connected. You can set each feature independently.

 

By default, features are all set to Allow. To set each feature differently, click Unlock at the bottom of the dialog window.
