I have a Windows 7 machine connected to a Windows network. Same subnet. The network has a Windows Server domain controller, Windows XP and Windows 7 machines.
I want this Windows 7 machine, to not be visible for the other computers when browsing the network, but I want to be able to access it with Remote Desktop from any machine from the network using its IP address. How can I do that?

Change the network type to PUBLIC, Turn OFF network discovery and disable LLTD protocol.

Hi LeeTutor,

My suggestion under 36576609 would have worked. You can open the link that I have posted and verify. The link is for Vista and the same would have applied to Windows 7.

Thanks,
