Lesson 18. Viewing a Network Drive > Accessing Shared Resources

Accessing Shared Resources

You can display files or other resources on the network drive in either the Network Neighborhood or the Explorer; either way, you can treat the files and folders just as you would any files on your own hard drive. To open any server, computer, or other resource, simply double-click the icon representing the resource; as long as you see folders and files, you have permission to use those items.

Figure 18.2 shows the stepped windows for a peer-to-peer network. The first window shows the Entire Network icon and the Humble server on an NT network. Instead of accessing the server, I double-clicked the Entire Network icon to reveal two domains: Opinions and Workgroup, Workgroup being a peer-to-peer connection between Windows computers. When I opened the Workgroup icon, two computers appeared and when I opened one of the computers, its hard drive appeared. Finally, I opened the hard drive to see the folders available to me over the network.
