Hello all! I'm new to the forums and I have come to see what you may have for me. I have searched a little around and couldn't find the answer to what I'm looking to do, so here is my question:

I share all of my files over my network at home because we have 7 computers at home (brother is a web-designer and family is mainly designers). I am also attending a close-by university and I don't want my files to be on the network when I'm at the University so; is there a way to change my network sharing settings depending on the network that I am connected to? Can I have my files shared on my home network and then hidden automatically when I connect at school?

Thank you so much!
QUOTE Thanks

You need to disable sharing or use a firewall to stop it and start it. Manual process.
