I have a small network at home with 4 computers.
My main computer is "Bob". Another computer on which I work is "Paul".
I want "Paul" to be able to write, delete and modify files on "Bob". But I
don't want the 2 other computers to have this permission. How can I set this
Thanks in advance,

I don't think that's possible. Permission to access shared resources
on a LAN is determined by user accounts, not by computer names.

Turn on password-protected sharing on "Bob". Log onto "Bob" and
"Paul" with the same user account (matching user name and password).
Log onto the other computers with a different user account.

Thanks a lot for this information,

You're welcome!
