Enabling file sharing for Private Network but not for Public Network

Enabling file sharing for Private Network but not for Public Network

My Vista PC has two Ethernet adapters: one is connected to the Internet, and one to a LAN. In the Network and Sharing Center I've configured the first to be a Public Network and the second to be a Private Network.

"When you make a connection to the internet, Vista asks you what kind of connection it is. Always choose Public. This way, your files will not be shared to the internet. However, when you need to reset this. Follow: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/124812-network-location-type-change.html

However, sometimes your connection to your network is also your connection to your gateway. In this case check your routers/gateways firewall."
