I'm not an expert, so someone may have to correct me.  I'm fairly 
certain that if you expect a client to modify the acl of files on the 
server, said client will need access to the users on that server, and 
the only way a client can get a list of users from a server is to be a 
member of that server's domain.  If you want to keep your network domain 
free, you will have to modify permissions on the server, not from the 
Windows client.
