We have recently upgraded to a Win2K domain. Our Win2K clients are now able to see their Network Places icon on their desktops. I need to hide this and make sure that they don't have access to directory resources. I know this is probably pretty easy. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

What do you mean about "Their Network Places" ?

To hide a share add a $ sign at the end of the name of the share.

To hide a computer type the following on each computer :
 net config server /hidden:yes

Longbow,

Right, I know that you can hide a specific computer but I don't want the Network Places (or Neighborhood) to be available to anyone but Admins.

ST Steve,
TweakUI doesn't allow you to change setting remotely right? I would have to install it on each workstation?

Sorry it took so long to respond. I was out last week.

Thanks for the help!!!

Jconley, you'll need to do this administratively through policies.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
