Hi Everybody!

I asked this question in vb division also!

Just help me with this!

Iam connected to a LAN!

Iam having highly confidential files (budget, Formulation)and also have a lots of software (over 10 GB)!

The problem is some body who knows the network administrator password but not actually the administrator access the confidential files and softwares!

Previously we were using 98 and there was a netwatcher
through which connected users can be identified!

i just requires a thing similar to netwatcher in 98!

Or atleast a message box should appear with the user name or systemname when any person connect to my pc!

Please help me regarding this!

Netwatcher still exists in win98 - its under add windows components.

More importantly, you might want to check out the free-for-personal-use firewall kerio (www.kerio.com) - amongst other things, it allows you to define a range of ip addresses able to access your network sharepoints, and can be configured to ask you to approve/disallow connection requests per instance.

Netwatcher is in windows 2000.  Just install it.  Also ensure you are logged in as admin.
