I don't know about Tortoise so I cannot say what it does...

If you are on an NT domain or Active Server Domain then your login to
your Windows workstation is authenticated against thta and is validf
across your network. But if you don't have a domain and are using
workgroups instead, then you need to havethe same user/password setup
on the server as you have on the workstation in order to use sspi.

Should work OK if all users log in to these machines as themselves.
