Chapter 8. SHARING RESOURCES ON THE NETWORK > Sharing Folders and Drives

Sharing Folders and Drives

So, it takes a user who has administrative rights to share a folder (or directory, depending on the NOS you are working with) or drive on a network server. Actually creating network shares certainly isn't rocket science. As a network administrator, you can create shares directly on the server (where you have logged in locally with an administrative account) or from a remote client computer (where you are logged on to the network with an account that has administrative rights). Let's look at two different network operating systems to illustrate the creation of shares locally on the server and remotely from a network client.

Sharing Windows 2000 Server Folders

As an administrator logged on to a server running Windows 2000 Server, you can create new folders on the server using Windows Explorer. These folders can then be filled with the files that will be shared on the network. Once the folder has been created, you only need to share the folder (you can also share an entire drive, if you wish).
