How do I turn off File and Print Sharing throught the Internet? I wanna keep it up on my LAN so I can print from my other computer, but for security reasons I've been told I should shut it off to the net? How do I do any of this?

Check out this site:

It's an excellent resource for PC security. The site has a couple of on-line tests available that will test your internet security. I recommend you do them. Where there are security holes, recommendations are made to close the holes.

Enjoy!

Just goto TCP\IP properties and goto Bindings and uncheck file\print sharing and reboot.

Disable the sharing for tcp/ip which is the protocall that is used by the internet. Install the Netbeui protocall and enable the printer sharing. Netbeui will only allow sharing for "your" network.
