I have created a new portal site on a Win 2003 Server (Not on AD and
not connected to any AD) and I am in process of creating two team sites
<<site1>> and <<site2>>.

I have a set of users and two user-groups <<site1Users>> and
<<site2Users>> and I have created these users and users-groups
in "Administrative Tools >> Computer Management" of Win2003.

I have noticed that though I didnot add  any users to the portal site, I
could see that a user from either of the user-groups can login and view
the portal site. I could see the logged-in users in "Show User
Information" of "Manage security  and additional Settings". However,
when I click on "Manage Users", I could not see any of these users,
except the Administrator who has created the portal site.

As per my requirements. I should not allow any users either from
<<site1Users>> or <<site2Users>> to open Main Portal Site, however I
will be creating security policies and access rights for team sites
<<site1>> and <<site2>>. Can anyone help me with this. I appreciate if
any of can provide me with any documentation/URLs.

I am trying to answer my own question, please correct me if I am

I have installed SPS Software on a new Win 2003 server which is an
AD. I was able to create the SharePoint Portal Site and added the
users from the AD. I have created two subsites <<site1>> and
<<site2>> and added the users from two different AD groups
<<site1Users>> and <<site2Users>>

I have noticed that only the users that I have added to the SPS and
subsites were able to access the sites, all other users were denied.

I think the Active Directory plays an important role when creating
individual site access rights.

AD is the only way in SharePoint 2003 to grant people access to the Webs
you've created. Some AD users will have cart-blanch access to
everything. Check out my blog post:
