The WFWSYS.CFG file can be freely modified using the admincfg.exe provided
with Windows for Workgroups. The file keeps track of configuration options
for WFW networking. Some of the options include:
Enabling/Disabling file, printing, DDE sharing
Enabling/Disabling password caching
... and a bunch of other stuff ...
admincfg.exe is on one of the WFW disks, but it is not installed by
default. Also note, that admincfg.exe gives you the ability to
password protect this file to prevent casual trouble-makers from
playing with it.
