Installing and Configuring Client Software

Before a computer can share its own resources or connect to other computers'resources across a network, compatible client software must be installed on each of these computers. The basic purpose of client software is the redirection of requests by a local computer to access the shared resources of remote computers and servers on the network. The client software is often referred to as the "Redirector."

To the user at the computer attached to a network, remote resources (either files or printers) look and behave like locally connected resources. But the client software behind the scenes redirects file requests over the network to the remote resources. When the client software is configured correctly, this activity is transparent to the user.
