Re: [PLUG] hide windows resource

 we do have consensus.
the consultant is clueless.

the church computer resource can be hidden on the windows network.
for win xp for example,

If you want to share files from a XP computer but you want to remove it
from showing up in the Network Neighborhood, follow the next steps:

1. Click Start -> Run and type cmd and click OK.

2. In the command prompt box type the following command:
net config server /hidden:yes3. Now your XP computer is hidden in the Network Neighborhood

 similarly for windows 7, 8
cant see it, cant use it

 Unfortunately, simple permissions are hard to get right, and I can
imagine some fairly confidential things that a church might not want to
expose to the public.

 The dual NAT router setup is easy, inexpensive, and solid. I have one
at home myself, with a Verizon FIOS router with an old Motorola
wireless router behind it. I also do some fancy VLAN stuff, but it
isn't really necessary.
