Chapter 7. Network Operating System Overview > Sharing Folders and Directories

Sharing Folders and Directories

The actual mechanics of sharing files on the LAN will differ depending on the NOS you are using on your network. But one common factor for server-based networks is that they require a user who has administrative rights to share a folder (or directory, as it is referred to on a NetWare network) on a network server. Depending on the size of the network, there may only be one user—you the administrator—who has the ability to create shared folders on network servers (which differs greatly from a peer-to-peer networking environment, where users can create shares on their computers as they see fit).

Shared volumes or folders on a network server as often referred to as shares. A network share is a volume or folder on a server that is made available to users on the network.
