    Best way to segregate a host on a network.

    by spyder89 ·

    I have a system that needs to access a network share but because it is Windows XP I want to make it so that no other system can reach it. Would wiping out the default gateway accomplish this? Also open to other suggestions. Both the share and the system are protected behind a firewall on the same network.

      Then I would configure the share so that to access it you need a username and password that you only disclose to the system that’s allowed to access it. What’s your problem?

        Not worried about the network share.

        Trying to make the Windows XP system safe on our network. Want to isolate the XP system as much as possible.

      It’s been decades and I’ve never had to do that.

      Instead I setup the share to require a name and password. That system has been in place for decades but once in a while folk ask how to set it up. Nod to tutorials on the web.

      Why is network segregation and segmentation so important?
