Why do end users need to see all the PCs on a Windows network
Posted on 2004-09-28
I am migrating from a Novell NDS to new-from-scratch Windows network with AD over a clean Cisco routed network where all shared services on servers. I remove the netbios over tcp/ip and file&print services from all clients, do not think I have any wins server. Still some of the PCs keep showing up on the Windows network - I would like only DC's and file servers show up. The computer browsing seems so baked into ths OS, is there any risk to removing all the stuff? Is there any guideline for building a secure new windows network when no legacy network exists?
