    File Sharing

    Hi friends,
    Is it possible to share file & another resources from another machine without use of static ip. If it is possible then how to prevent it?

    You don't need a static IP to access a machine: with DNS and DHCP the name is enough.

    If you want to prevent sharing then set security options on the machine to prevent sharing. You can't solve this perfectly at a network layer, and the best you can do is put a hub between the two computers and block traffic to/from ports.
