Unsure about mainframe - PC sharing

by Deadly Ernest In reply to SAP

Not sure what SAP is in a mainframe, but most of the later MS windows systems have SAP (Share Advertising Protocol) that, when turned on, allows the PC to sent out an message advertising what shared resources it has. Thus instead of waiting for another PC to ask, it send an advice an immediately updates the info that the other PCs have about it.
