Default Shares

How do I disable them in WIN2000 RC2? Or at least how do I restrict access to the C$ and ADMIN$ shares.

Thanks

Steve

you can restrict access to these shares you can even remove the share at system boot but they will return on reboot dont think theres a regedit setting enabled share by default

There was in NT4 a registry setting to stop this share but I can't find the doc to do explain which one. It's probably the same one in W2K (at least i'm willing to kill my system trying *g*)

For server try:

System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters\
  AutoShareServer = 0

For workstation:
  AutoShareWks = 0

The type is REG_DWORD in both cases.

Thanks carmine - I had put that entry in but it hadn't worked. I didn't have it as a REG_DWORD.

So for all you out there - this works just as well in Windows 2000. Tried and tested.

Thanks again.

I found the registry key "System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters\ ", but there is no setting for "AutoShareWks".  I am on a Windows 2000 workstation machine, did I miss something?

Create a new REG_DWORD entry in there called AutoShareWks.
