Chapter 9 -- Establishing Network Shares and Accounts

[Previous] [Next]

Chapter 9

About This Chapter

In a peer-to-peer network we share, or make available to the network, any directories or printers to which we want others to have access. In networks that have client/server configurations, we use accounts to establish who can access which files, directories, and printers. This chapter explores the differences between shares and accounts and demonstrates how to use each appropriately. The focus in this chapter is on sharing and account procedures. Using these features to secure the network from harm, intentional or accidental, is covered in Chapter 10, "Ensuring Network Security."

Before You Begin

The concepts presented in this chapter are all new. Because the subject matter is complex, you should be familiar with the network terms presented in previous chapters.
