Hide some PC's from My Network Places

Hi,

On our network, most users can browse peoples PC's through My Network Places.

Is there a way of hiding only certain PC's from this list??

Hi ellisj2006,

you can disable netbios over tcpip which will make sure the machines dont show up in my network places

network properties - tcpip props - wins - disable netbios over tcpip

however if you dont have dns you may have name resolution problems

We have a DNS server, so this is all Netbios over TCP does?

it provides resolution for old systems like 98 95 an ME but DNS takes care of it 99% of the time anyway :)

you will have to restart each machine
