QUESTION RELATED TO NETWORK NEIGHBARHOO

by donaldsimpson.co.uk In reply to QUESTION RELATED TO NETWO ...

Hi,
This is all I could get from Microsoft on the subject:

Question:

What registry parameter is used to hide a server from the browser?

Answer:

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide
problems that may require you to reinstall Windows NT to correct them. Microsoft
cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can
be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.

1. Under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following subkey:

\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

2. From the Edit menu, choose Add Value and type:

Hidden

NOTE: This value is case sensitive and must begin with a capital H.

3. In the Data Type field, choose REG_DWORD and choose OK.

4. In the Data field, type 1 to enable hiding and choose OK.

NOTE: Data field range: 0 or 1
Default: 0 (false)

5. Restart your computer.

Hope that helps, good luck,
Donald

If you don't want your server to be seen over the network, install it as a PDC, then remove its network connection. If you need to connect to it, plug it.

Don't share that important data. Or share it to some users only. Or share it with password. Or even the name of the server showing in Network Neighbourhood is important data?

To prevent an NT box from appearing in network neighborhood STOP the SERVER SERVICE.but then you can't reach data on this machine from anywhere else on the LAN. or you could allow the machine to appear in Neighborhood but only share the Directories that you wish to grant access to. If you are using NTFS you can take advantage of the very nice permissions feature NTFS provides. This is no doubt the best solution most of the time.
