Server Name

by CMB from Omaha In reply to How to find server name a ...

Hope this helps--try using this syntax in your browser:

\\Name-of-PC

but substitute your actual PC's name after the \\.

For example, my home network contains two Sony Vaios, and I've named the Sony desktop "Big-vaio". So to access it on the network, I can type \\Big-vaio in any browser window. This shows my currently shared resources on that machine.

If you are not familiar with computer names, just right-click on the "My Computer" icon on desktop and click Properties, then the Computer Name tab. Good luck, and post back if you need to!
