Secrets of the Windows Masters

Browsing with Net Commands

As an alternative to browsing for resources through My Network Places, you can use the command prompt. This method provides a way to connect to known or hidden shared resources that might not be populating the Browse list in My Network Places.

You should become familiar with the basic net commands that work in the Windows networking environment. For example, you can use the net view command to perform most of the same browsing actions as My Network Places or Windows Explorer. One big advantage of net view compared to My Network Places is that it shows only your own workgroup's computers; sometimes My Network Places shows you all workgroups connected to the same network (see Figure 18.16).
