Setting up a small network at my office. So far everything is fine but I'm trying to tighten up the security and have some questions.
So first off, does home group only work for 'home' connection? If so why is there a home group profile for public?
What is the point of this public profile? I have disabled all the sharing settings on it and when I do that it re-enables the firewall (Windows 7 firewall). If I go and disable the firewall again (in control panel/firewall) it enables all the public profile options I had just disabled. Really confusing.
With network discovery on I can see pcs that aren't in my workgroup yet I can still access them and they can access me without a password. They are on the same lan just not the same workgroup name. How do I setup a password to stop this? I was messing around with the user permissions but I think I have to create another user besides my admin account?
And why by default does it keep trying to make my C:/Users folder shared? Seems with certain settings will re-share that folder?
All the questions I can think of for now.
