This is tutorial will show you how to Hide your PC|Personal Computer|laptop|Desktop in local network|LAN.


Why is this ?

When you want to hack any local network like wireless you want to be invisible
so no one can see your pc in that localnetwork .

Note :

if your local network name is WORKGROUP then pass step 1 go to step 2.

1 – go to: My Computer —-> Properties —-> Computer Name —-> Change —–> WORKGROUP = Change to WORKGROUP
next restart your pc .

2 – go to Start ——-> Run ——-> Cmd then type on command line:

net config server /hidden:yes

after that you will get message from system on command line like this :
The command completed successfully.

This is direct command
C:\Documents and Settings\Imports.system>net config server /hidden:yes

The command completed successfully.


after few mins your computer will be invisible.
To Confirm it check your “My Network Places”

My Network Places ——–> View workgroup computers .


if want be visible change yes to no like this :


net config server /hidden:no
