Block out my home LAN from Office Network Neighborhood
Posted on 2001-09-04
I have a cable connection at home with a VPN setup through my router to access office files. I use the office WINS on my home LAN so I can access my office machines through my Network Neighborhood. Only my home "work" machine (Win2k) logs into the office NT4 domain. All other machines log into the home NT4 domain. I can access both my home domain and office domain shares from my home "work" machine with this setup and it works great.
My problem is that my home domain appears in the office Network Neighborhood and any shares that are unprotected are accessible from anyone at the office. I can set up the home shares to protect curious or troublesome office workers but I would rather find a means to block it from apearing in the first place. Is there a port I can block on my home router to keep my home domain from appearing over the VPN connection?
