Sharing Folders with Web Sharing

If you want to add to your Web site a folder that is not inside c:\inetpub\wwwroot, you can add it as a virtual folder through the Internet Information Services management tool, which I described in the previous section, or through a shortcut feature called Web Sharing.

You can set up Web Sharing using Windows Explorer. It provides a quick and easy way to make a folder available to others through your computer’s Web server. To do this, right-click a folder in the Explorer display, and select Properties. You’ll see a new tab called Web Sharing—this appears when you’ve installed IIS. Select the Web Sharing tab, and select Share This Folder. The virtual directory or Edit Directory dialog appears, as shown in Figure 13.4.
