Is there any mechanism, be it firewall or whatever, that will make a particular PC invisible from a specific IP address, without preventing normal network traffic? By invisible, I mean does not show up in My Network Places.

yah if you put it on another subnet :) or actually just make sure you don't have file print sharing on it and make sure not loggin on to the network

Thanks play1998. I see where you're coming from!

Putting it on a different subnet would work, but I am using VPN to join two remote subnets, so that's out. (Actually, it might not be, but I shall have to think about it). Having no sharing is too restrictive and anyway, it doesn't stop it appearing in My Network Places.

out it on a different work group :) name it in another workgroup and it will not show up there on network neighborhood unless you click on entire network :) lol that is another way around it. but you can make it not to log on to the network are you using a domain to log on ?? or no ??
