HIDING A CLIENT IN NETWORK NEIGHBOURHOOD

By sanjib ·
When the network neighbourhood icon is clicked all the clients in the network are visible. My question is, if I don't want my P.C to be visible in the network neighbourhood, what windows registry string or key needs to be edited or modified in my P.C. Both in case of windows 9x or NT.

hi,
Using the registry editor set the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters and set value Hidden from 0 to 1 which should be of type DWORD. You should then reboot. You can also type

net config server /hidden:yes

The above command also automatically creates quite a lot of other values under \Parameters key, too.

You can still connect to the computer, but it is not displayed on the browser.

the other way for nt machines is to deaktivate the server and browser service.
but then you can't make a shared connection to this machines.

Something else that you can do.
If you do not have any printers that you want to share from this particular PC, then in the Network Components, remove the 'file and printer sharing'. Reboot your system, and this will keep your pc from being seen inthe Network Neighborhood.

Simple yet effective
