WfW 3.11 Sharing and Mapping

Since there is no "My Computer" or "Network-Neighborhood" (like on Windows95 or WindowsNT4), we have to use the "FileManager".

Sharing:

First, select the drive or
directory to be shared,
then select from the
Menu: "Disk" "Share As.."
You can modify the Share-Name and select the
Access-Type.
A shared item is identified
by the "holding Hand"
The Shared Resource is
now visible/accessible in
the Network-Neighborhood
of Windows95/NT4
Systems.



Mapping:

To connect to a shared resource
on another system, use in
FileManager the Menu-Option:
"Disk" :
"Connect Network Drive.."
Here is the equivalent to the
Windows 95 Network
Neighborhood, listing all
systems with a shared
resource.
Double-Click on a system
to display its resources.
Click on a Shared resource
to select it.
It build the network path
(UNC). Make sure to
select "Reconnect at Startup"
(so that on the next reboot,
the network connections are
established automatically).

File-Manager displays now a new Disk-Icon for this Network-drive,
select it (click it) to display the content of the drive:
