Is it possible to share a folder without Admin rights, just like on Windows XP?

More information is required. What profil3e owns the folder that you want to share? Of course just turning on the ability to share files requires an administrator to enable it. –  Ramhound Apr 12 '13 at 13:40

This link and this link would seem to be appropriate. The Windows Interface version would seem to be usable without administrative rights, although since I am unable to test them at the current time, I cannot say for sure. You can go ahead and see if it works. Please post your results.
