We are running pc's and laptops with windows 2000 and XP os's.  We are trying to find a way to remotely turn "on" the File and Print Sharing tool on all our machines.  Is there a registry key that I can switch manually?  Is there a logon script I can use?  Please advise!

Thanks

Dan

I'm sure there is a way, might be a little harder than if you were using group policies with the firewall in xp sp2.  What you could do is get a copy of WinDiff.  Create a snapshot(save) the registry.  Now go into and enable file and print sharing then use export the registry again.  You should have two copies of your registry.  Use WinDiff to compare both files.  It will highlight the registry key that was changed.

There appears to be a way to do it using the utility snetcfg.exe.  This thread has a discussion and download links:
