Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\Dave>
C:\Documents and Settings\Dave>
C:\Documents and Settings\Dave>net /?
The syntax of this command is:


NET [ ACCOUNTS | COMPUTER | CONFIG | CONTINUE | FILE | GROUP | HELP |
HELPMSG | LOCALGROUP | NAME | PAUSE | PRINT | SEND | SESSION |
SHARE | START | STATISTICS | STOP | TIME | USE | USER | VIEW ]


C:\Documents and Settings\Dave>net config /?
The syntax of this command is:


NET CONFIG
[SERVER | WORKSTATION]


C:\Documents and Settings\Dave>net config server /?
The syntax of this command is:


NET CONFIG SERVER
/AUTODISCONNECT:time
/SRVCOMMENT:"text"
/HIDDEN:{YES | NO}


Try This

net config server /hidden:yes

it may take a bit for your computer to dissapear from the net map when this command is sent.

input the net config svr command to check the status.

to reverse the hidden comman just replace yes with No.

hope that helps.
