I have 6 PCs. All 6 PCs have Windows 7 Ultimate OS Installed. I want to create a Network and have control on all systems.
It should be 1+5. i.e. One should be the Main system. The rest of the 5 PCs should be connected to the Main PC. The 5 connected PCs should have access to the Main System for Network Printing and Network Scanning. All the 5 PCs should not have any other access to the Main System.
The Main System should have all access and full control over all other 5 PCs. It should have access to Delete, Modify, Write, Read, etc.
All the 5 PCs are directly connected to the switch port with each seperate network cable(ie. a cable from each system connected to the switch port. (totally 5 cables). The switch is directly connected to the Modem.
The Main System is also connected to the switch port with a seperate cable.
The 5 PCs can or cannot be accessible from each other – no issues whatever it is.
So now the main task is: How to configure the sytem network for this setup? Whether it should be a Home Group or Workgroup or Domain?
Help me with a schematic diagram if possible.
