    Network Neighborhood

    Hi all,
    In a NT Network of course we all know that computers participating with the network their names can be seen from network neighborhood.
    my question is: i know it is possible to make computer names not visible from the network neighborhood and we can only see it by doing a map to it's computer name, do u know how?
    Thank u.

    Yep, add a "$" sign at the end of the share name, e.g. sharedmap$

    Hi Al Bundy
    You are right but even if we put a $ sign on all shares the computer name will still appear in network neighborhood with the netlogon share and printers share.

    Oops sorry, I see that I misread your question.

    Here's how you do it:

    Under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following subkey:

    \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters


    From the Edit menu, choose Add Value and type:

    Hidden

    NOTE: This value is case sensitive and must begin with a capital H.


    In the Data Type field, choose REG_DWORD and choose OK.


    In the Data field, type 1 to enable hiding and choose OK.


    NOTE: Data field range: 0 or 1
    Default: 0 (false)


    Restart your computer.

    Good luck !
