As long as you are an administrator the drives are shared for you. You can access the c drive for example by going through My Network Places and typing \\computername\c$

hi Dart,
Thanx for your advice. But i have some standalone systems in my network. Is there any way i can share their resources too, I mean remotely???? If you know any third party softwares through which i can do that then please do help me out.

Regards.

When you say "standalone" systems, do you mean that they aren't connected physically to the network at all? If that's the case, there is no way to share anything remotely with them. There has to be a physical connection of some kind (Ethernet, phone line, wireless network, etc.) to share resources between any two machines. Hope this helps!

P.S. Provided that physical connection exists and is properly set up, you should be able to connect to any WinNT/2K/XP workstation with the administrative share ([driveletter}$, i.e., c$, d$, etc.). If they are Win9x machines, you will need to havethem allow sharing from their end and set their drive(s) to be shared before you will be able to see them. Hope this helps!

Here is a suggestion if you have a physical connection to the computer.
If you (remote computer) are running Windows 2000 Pro or 2000 Server, AND the computers on the network are NT or 2000, Then it is possible to create shares.
Open the control panel on your computer / administrative tools / computer management.
When this opens up, find the left window a RIGHT-CLICK 'Computer Management (Local)'. This opens a window where you can enter the computer name OR IP address. (This depends on how you are connected to the network) Enter the computer name or IP and this will then allow you to manage the other computer remotely.
Open 'System Tools' / 'Shared Folders' and Highlight 'Shares' In the right hand window, you can right-click andadd a share.

Hope this helps.
