[access-uk] Re: avg free edition

Hi Carol.

It's been a while since I frist setup my network but I belive there is a setup wizard somewhere that allows you to share files and folders across the network.

The reason ebing I don't like wizards when it comes to networking is Windows appears to add something, (which I'm not sure of what this is yet), that can make the network flaky.

For example.

When I frist had my network I used my router and repeaters setup cd's, and I used a setup wizard as aposed to going into the drive/folders properties.

My network drives would become unavailable at times and the only way I coudl get access to them again was by rebooting one of the systems or running a network repair. Which basically clears the net bios cache.

I am finding that wizards although useful can often make changes you're not aware of to a setup.

Barry, please explain further your final sentence and reason for saying
what you're saying about the wizard?

Thanks.

Just to add slightly to what George said.

One advantage to drive mapping is that you can view your shared network
drives in My Computer/Windows Explorer without having to go into My
Network
Places.

I'd strongly suggest however manualy sharing a drive without using the
Network Wizard before mapping.

Hi Andy,

Let's suppose you have two computers, A & B, linked together as a
small network.

Each of those computers has a C: drive.

If you are on computer A, and want to look at computer B's
C: drive, you cannot, because it has the same drive letter
as your own.

So what you do is tell computer A that you are going to assign (or
map) a disk drive letter to a disk drive on computer B.

Hence you might perhaps use the letter F, telling your computer that
this is actually the C: drive on computer B.

When you then look in My Computer, you would see an F: drive on
Computer B:

The process is called "Drive Mapping"

George.

Doris,

Coming in on this and we'll probably be doing it too: Are

you saying it
can't scan mapped drive, which in our case would be "C",
or is there a
copy somewhere that it does not scan?

Yeha, sure. my husband and i do. the only thing you'll
need to do is
to install avg free edition on both machines. It means you
cannot
scan mapped drive on the network but otherwise it does not
know or
care you have another machine on your lan.

Cheers,

Doris
