I’m working for an insurance company and I need to hide the accounting computer from other computers using subnetting. How can I do this?

Please help me.

    I don't see why you want to "hide" the computer in such a manner. If you simply don't want other computers to be able to even attempt to access files on it, you can either disable the Server service and/or use a software firewall on the computer that denies all incoming connections (regardless of connection type, though this can disrupt other functions such as streaming content and remote administrative access).

    Get a cheap router with NAT firewall and plug your accounting computer into it.

      This would probably be against company policy and it may get you fired, or at the very least, a reprimand as such things are a security risk in a corporate network.
