I have two Windows 7 Professional workstations in my network. Workstation A is hosting a standard Windows network share which is accessed by workstation B. I would like to encrypt the (net share) traffic between Workstation A and Workstation B because there are other users in this network who should not be able to capture the traffic between my workstations.

Is there any (simple) solution for doing this?

I would recommend you to set up a secure tunnel between the two systems... Think of it like a two-computer VPN.

You can use this guide to setup a secure encrypted ssh connection fore windows file sharing:

Good luck!
