No sharing tab in Local Area Connection properties?

  1. Can anyone explain the reason why I don't see a sharing tab in my Local
    Area Connection Properties? I'm running Windows 2000 Pro and have removed
    my File and Printer Sharing and Client For MS Networks components.

    I've also closed a load of services in order to ensure that ports are safe.
    Could that be the reason?

    I've also noticed that I no longer see a "sharing" option in my explorer
    shell for each of my hard drive partitions. Would this have to do with
    removing the File and Printer Sharing component?

  2. You probably have disabled the service responsible for internet connection
    sharing.
    Yes, of course. You already know, so why ask?

    Btw., if you have a LAN connection on a separate interface, you can remove
    the "binding" of file-and-printer sharing just from the internet-connected
    interface.
