Chapter 8. SHARING RESOURCES ON THE NETWORK > Locating Network Resources

Locating Network Resources

Once you have created shared folders or directories on your server, users can access these shares from their client computers. One way to access a network share is to browse for all the shares available and then open the appropriate one. It's worth noting that if the aforementioned share permissions have been implemented, users may see shares on the network that they do not have access to.

Browsing the network with a Windows client (which is the predominant client on both NetWare and Windows networks) is pretty straightforward; for example, on a Windows 2000 Professional client, all the user has to do is double-click the My Network Places icon on the Windows desktop. The Entire Network icon in the My Network Places window can then be used to browse the networks that the client can connect to. For example, Figure 8.8 shows the Entire Network browser window for a client that can connect to both a Microsoft Windows network and a NetWare network (the client computer is configured with both client software for both network types).
