I am living in a house where we are sharing an internet connection.
I also have a small server (HP Proliant N40L running WHS 2011) that will be connected via cable to the main router/wireless access point in my room. I would if possible like for it to be invisible to those that are connected to the access point and browsing the network.
I have run
net config server /hidden:yes
on the server, but if I open the Network window on my other pcs, the server still shows up:
Is there a way to solve this?
Network location is set to PUBLIC on the server
In advanced settings for the public network profile
- Network discovery is OFF
- File and printer sharing is OFF
- Public folder sharing is OFF
- Media streaming is OFF
- Password protected sharing is ON
Server was rebooted after the network profile settings were made and the net config command was run (although I don't expect this should be necessary)
