The Citrix Management Console uses that service to enumerate and show
workstations among other things.

Thanks Jim,

I'll give that a go.

As for the Computer Browser service being disabled, I've only just started
looking into windows 2000, but with NT4 I always used to disable the
Computer Browser Service (rather than removing the Computer Browser Network
Service through the Network applet) on workstations.

As far as I knew, this meant that workstations could browse the network (in
NetBIOS terms) but could not maintain NetBIOS browser lists (and therefore,
could not become Master Browser). The reason why I did this is because the
"do not participate in browser elections" registry key when set to 1 used to
cause a service failure.

What kind of grief can I expect from disabling the computer browser service?
All I would expect is that my terminal server would simply not itself hold a
list of Netbios resources available across the Network (shares etc.), Or are
my thoughts misguided on this issue?

Many thanks for your support,

Oliver Simpson.
