how to disconnect a remote access to a shared folder from lets say a pc used by several people to a pc used by one person.

Sometimes I used shared PCs with win2k in my network at work to access my work pc(I'm the only user) to get access to my files.  I usually do this by clicking on "start" click "run" and type \\mycomputername, seconds later a prompt shows up asking for log in name and password, which I enter and I get access to my pc shared folders.
Now I'm logged and if a close the window, I'm still logged in, anybody who knows my computer name can access my computer and they won't be prompted for pw.
I know that if I reboot the pc that I used to access my pc all the connections will be broken. but I don't want to do this(takes time). Is there a command I can use to disconnect?

type:

NET USE

to see a list of connections.

To delete connections, for each item that starts out with \\mycomputername, type:

NET USE \\mycomputername\share /delete

That seems you have access to the shared folder and any body who is allowed to access that shared folder will have access to it. the user-name + password is invoked when you try to access the shared folder. if you shared the folder to everyone then that will not ask for user-name password.

The security of the shared folder is setup from the PC that is hosting the shared folder.

Incidentally, as long as you have one connection to your computer, it will be "open" for all future connections.  So you have to make sure you remove all other connections with net use \\server\share /delete
