Connecting to Another Computer for File Sharing

Once you've connected several computers together into a network, and configured your computer for file sharing, the next step is to begin communicating. In order to communicate with another computer, you'll need access to a user account. Typically a user account defines you with a specific name, password, and permissions. Once you log into the other computer, you'll be able to access the areas (permissions) granted to you by the Systems Administrator.

Connect to Another Computer for File Sharing

Turn on all the computers.

Click the Go menu, and then click Connect To Server.

Connect using one of the following methods:

  • Click Browse, and then double-click on one of the available server icons.

  • Type the computer's Server Address, and then click Connect.

  • Click the Recent Servers button, and then select a server address from the list of available options.

Type your Name and Password.

Click Connect.

Select the area of the other computer you want to access.

Click OK.

IMPORTANT The other computer now functions and acts as a hard drive on your computer.

Drag files from your computer to the networked computer or vice versa.

Control-click on the Network Computer icon, and then click Eject to close the connection between the two computers.
