Re: How to make your PC hidden?

If you share Windows folders, you probably noticed that when you browse Network Neighborhood ("My Network" in XP or "Network" in Vista), Windows broadcast your PC name to anyone browsing on the same subnet.

You may want to hide you Computer from being discovered, but still be able to connect to your shared folders.

To hide your computer from being browsed in Network Neighborhood, open a command prompt by clicking on Start \ Run… and typing the following:

net config server /HIDDEN:YES

If the command was executed successfully, you should see "The command completed successfully."

You can verify with the following command :

net config server

and check that the "Server hidden" status is Yes
