custom networkneighborhood in *.pol file

By brijesh_nam ·
If I set no entire netowk neighborhood in policy file, can I can give shared directories to user. There is a option called custom netowork neighboorhood, but what should be the path, can anyone tell me the syntax for the path that I should give so that a user can acess a directory in the server from the client machine.

The easiest way to set up shared drives yet hide network neighborhood is to map the drives before you hide it.

right click on network neighborhook, and map drive. Pick a drive letter, like g: h: etc,

enter the path which will be something like

//fs_name/documents/shared etc

Make sure you click the re-connect at login

In your Networking login configuration, make sure you enable quick login ( restores network connections ).

You can then hide network neighborhood, yet the user will still be able to see the mapped drive/directory as drive g:, h: etc.

the path for custom Network / n can be anwhere that all users can see, and the destination folder should contain shortcuts to the servers you want to appear.
good place for the custom folder is netlogon as all users get read permissions there, ie
\\server\netlogon\custom\
