Using Interlnk to Share Another Computer's Resources

More and more users now have come to own more than one computer. Often they have a desktop machine in the office and a notebook or laptop computer they use when they travel. Although having two computers extends your computing power to places other than your office, having two computers also can make it difficult to keep data in both places up-to-date. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for two users in an office to need to share files, and maybe even a printer, at times.

The DOS feature called Interlnk enables you to access drives and printers on a remote computer as though they were part of your computer. You can use this feature to transfer files from a laptop or notebook computer to your desktop computer, to print files from your portable computer on a printer attached to your desktop computer, and even to run programs directly from the remote computer.
