Accessing Windows Workgroup Shares

Accessing shares in a workgroup is very straightforward. In Windows you can browse for other computers in a workgroup using the Network Neighborhood or the My Network Places window (depending on the version of Windows you are using). Figure 6.18 shows the workgroup computers available to a workgroup member computer running Windows XP. Note that there are Windows peers in the workgroup and a Linux peer running Lycoris Desktop (and using Samba as a way to connect to the workgroup).
