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.
