Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

Well, on windows xp pro there is a professional sharing feature. Enable it on the two computers.
Open Explorer, go to Tools/Folder Options/View. You'll see a mark on Enable Simple File sharing (recommended). Disable Simple File Sharing. Now, if the users still have access to these two computers, Go to My Computer/Manage?Local users and Groups and see if the users are not in the local users.

To refuse any access to these computers do this on every one:

Start/Run/Gpedit.msc Go to Computer configuration/Security settings/Users Rights Assignment/Access this computer from the network, and delete users and groups that don't have to access the computer, like Everyone, users. Don't do this if first advice is enough, since you may have need to access yourself, or other authorized users, these computers.
