Chapter 22. Using a Windows 2000 Network > Traditional and Web Sharing

Traditional and Web Sharing

In Windows 2000, you can actually get to shared folders and printers in two ways: through traditional LAN methods and via the World Wide Web. This last method shouldn't come as much of a surprise these days; I think even my washing machine has a Web interface now.

The traditional methods are based on the Microsoft Networking protocol (NetBT, also called SMB), which has been around for a very long time. It actually dates back to the days when IBM ruled the PC world and Microsoft was an obscure but up-and-coming company. (Have things changed or what?!)
