    I have installed a few win7 pro machines, both in Work Group & Domain mode, and I can not find a way to configure them so that I can browse the Network for shared servers, but not have them show up in Network neighborhood from the other Win7 & WinXP workstations. Havinh a bunch of Win7 workstations (that are not shared and you can not connect to) show up along with the shared servers is cornfusing for the users. Can someone shed some light on this, plz? Is this possible with Win7 Pro? THNX.....

    As far as I know, if a machine has Windows 7 then it will be seen on the network.

    You might look into turning OFF the network discovery on those machines that are NOT shared. BUT, then they may not be able to see the "Shared" machines.

    Yes, if I turn off the Network Discovery on the Win7 machines, then I can not see the shared servers that I want to see. NOT very useful! There must be a solution....
