I have a laptop that is my main pc, it has printer and peripherals attached. I have another 2 computers in the house that I want to be able to use the laptops printer and also transfer files between all. I currently have them all setup to do that. My concern is the security of the laptop when I travel etc.
I assume that when I'm hooked into an open wireless network others can look at my folders.....
It's only 5% of the time when I would be hooked into an open network, the rest of the time I'm in a password protected wireless network.
For someone who wants to keep it simple and dowsn't have great networking knowledge, is the easiest thing to do when I'm in an open environment, just untick file and printer sharing?
Thanks in advance, I have looked at a myriad of posts, but can't seem to see an easy answer in there!!
