Chapter Summary

  • A network share is a drive or folder on a server that is made available to network users.

  • Group membership can be used to assign users different levels of access to shares on the network.

  • Home folders or directories can be created for users to provide them with private shares on a network server.

  • Windows clients can browse or search for network shares on the network.

  • Network shares can be mapped to logical drives, making it easier for users to access the files on a particular share.

  • Printers can be shared on the network. This shared resource is managed by a print server.

  • Print jobs sent to network printers are accepted by the print spooler software and placed in the print server's print queue.

  • A print server is configured by physically attaching the printer to the server computer and installing the appropriate driver for the printer on the server.

  • Different access levels can be granted to users in relation to shared printers. Some users can be designated to help manage printers and the print queue.

  • In a mixed network environment, embracing more than one NOS gateway software can be used to allow communication between the different NOS platforms.
