Configuring Network Search Order

If your computer is connected to more than one kind of network, you can tell Windows NT in which order to search and attach to the network. For example, if you want to attach to the NetWare network first so you can search, retrieve, and print files, you specify that in the Network Access Order dialog box. Windows NT searches for the NetWare network when it starts up and attaches to the network. Additionally, Windows NT discontinues the search after finding the first network.

You can always switch from one network to the other without rebooting your computer. Open the Network Neighborhood window and double-click the Entire Network icon. Choose the network you want to attach to from the resulting window. If your user name and password are the same for both networks, you'll have no trouble switching back and forth. If your credentials are not the same for both networks, you'll have to log off of one network and log on to the other.
