Hiding Vista PC from the network Browse List
I am trying to hide our general staff VISTA PC's from the network browse list.

Previously, in XP I was able to issue the command
net config server /hidden:yes via a startup script in a GPO and although
I've done this, the following is true:

1) Browse the network from an XP box and only the important servers appear
(desired)
2) Browse the network from a VISTA box and all the other vista machines
together with the important servers are shown, but none of the remaining XP
boxes are shown.

I want to be able to hide all VISTA boxes from each other. Obviously I need
network discover turned on and I wish to have file sharing on for
administration.

Any ideas?

Steve

RE: Hiding Vista PC from the network Browse List
Right click on the Command Prompt icon and select "Run as administrator"
at the command prompt type in "net config server /hidden:yes" , without the
quotes
