Introduction

Windows XP comes with many tools for managing files and folders across multiple computers. One of the more powerful tools is My Network Places. A network is a system of two or more computers connected together to share resources. It consists of at least one host and one client. My Network Places is integrated with Windows Explorer and My Computer, allowing you to view the entire network (hosts and clients) and to share files and folders with people from other parts of the network. Using My Network Places (accessed from the Start menu), you create and manage your network connections to these other computers. This chapter helps you set up you host and client computers so they can easily share files across your network.

In addition, Windows provides tools for sharing files and folders with machines that are not located in your home or in the same office (commonly referred to as remote computers). You can connect your computer to a network in a different location via modem, or via the internet using the Communications accessory provided. You can also share and synchronize files between your laptop and your desktop computers using the Briefcase.
