This can't be done, a workgroup is P2P (Peer 2 Peer). If theres something you don't want others to touch then don't put it in the share.

In an html request, the client (firefox, ie, etc) sends the clients hostname, IP, a bunch of other stuff, but...

Hello, I am creating a sign on screen for my application in which I want to store the username and password in a database table. I was thinking of putting a combo box connected to the database to pull up the usernames and then having a textbox for the user to enter their password. Can someone tell me please how to compare the contents of the textbox to the password in the database?

Hello all, I am using perl net::telnet to login remote switches by $t->open($device); $t->login($username, $password); and everything goes on very well. The problem is that now I have to telnet another switch that doesn't have a username prompt...which means only $password is needed when login... but so far as i know that both username and pw are parameters of Telnet.pm login()....How can I login such kind of switch? Thanks a lot!

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
