Chapter 2. Working in Windows NT 4.0 > Introducing Network Neighborhood

Introducing Network Neighborhood

If you installed the network when you installed Windows NT, you'll find an icon for Network Neighborhood on your Desktop. Network Neighborhood gives you access to the network resources your computer is attached to. These resources include file servers, print servers, other workgroup members, and other network assets. Network Neighborhood, like My Computer and Recycle Bin, is a special folder. As such, you work with the Network Neighborhood folder as you would any other folder; sorting objects in the folder, hiding or showing the toolbar, and so on. When you open Network Neighborhood, you see all of the computers that belong to the same workgroup as you, as well as a special icon labeled Entire Network that gives you access to the rest of your network.

Mapping to Network Resources

From Network Neighborhood, you can attach to and map drive letters to different network resources. When you open the entire Network folder, you see the different types of LAN networks services installed on your system. After choosing the network service you want to use, you see all of the servers on your network. When you open a server, you can map to any of its folders.
