I am putting together a small network... at the moment the Windows XP box can be seen by other computers. How can I make it so that this box does not show up on any other computers on the network? I am going to be running services on this box that other computers will connect to over specific ports, but I don't want other computers browsing the network to find that particular box and it's list of things like "My Shared Documents" and such... things that Windows automatically creates. Can these be disabled?

In NT and Windows 2000 you could edit registry :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

Double click AutoShareServer and set to 0 to disable this for a server
Double click AutoShareWks and set to 0 to disable this for a workstation

If the entry is not present yet, add a value of type reg_dword value

Although i'm not sure if this will also work for XP
