well, how and who do you want to be able to give access to?
do you need to access anything within your lan? or do you want to block everything?
how many computers do you have on your lan? do you use VPN?

Hey Snapper,

I'm inquiring about my home PC, and there are NO computers networked to mine (no LAN)... I connect to the internet through a Local Area Connection (Hybrid Cable ISP with a Motorola SURFboard SB5100 + router) to Amnet.co.cr (which I guess makes it a WAN?) :thumbsup:

Do you want to know which to delete so you can make your computer more secure?

After reading up on the subject I came to the conclusion that these groups are just default categories that are available to assign users to... I'm going to leave them alone; in any case, it's the users that matter and the groups that they can be assigned to...

Hope this some day helps somebody...
:thumbsup:
