    We are running Windows NT Small Business Server. I need to give someone on the network access to the Internet via our Proxy server, but not allow him to browse the network through network neighborhood. I've heard that you can do this on his computer by editing the registry somehow. How?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Not sure about the registry settings but I beleive you can set a policy so that the net neighborhood icon will be hidden.
    Hope this helps

    I don't do a lot of work with the registry, probably because I am afraid I will screw it up but I do know that if you have access to the router, you can set up an access control list that you might be able to block him from the network with. You would probably have to talk to your network admin first though (unless that's you), and he could show you how.
