The above is an example of Net Config Server command. The above output from this command shows the Server Name, Server Comment etc. You can change the Server comment by using the following command:
Net Config Server /SRVCOMMENT: “Internet Information Server”
In the same way, you can use the following command to change the server’s visibility in network:
Net Config Server /HIDDEN: Yes / No
The “Maximum Logged On Users” displays the number of connections this server can accept over the network. It displays maximum 10 that means only 10 users can log on to this server or access files over the network. You can not change this.
The “Idle session time (min)” is the time up to which users can be active on this server. After expiry of this time, the users will be disconnected automatically and they have to log on to again to access files. By default, it is 10 minutes but you can change it to as per your requirement. To change the idle time setting, please use the following command:
Net Config Server /AUTODISCONNECT: 50
