The File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component allows computers on a network to access resources on other computers using a Microsoft network. This component is installed and enabled by default. It is enabled per connection using TCP/IP and is necessary to share local folders.
The File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component is the equivalent of the Server service in Windows NT 4.0. Shared permissions are used to control access to shared folders when they are accessed over the network.
1. Apply only to users who gain access to the resource over the network. They do not apply to users who log on locally, such as on a terminal server.
2. Apply to all files and folders in the shared resource.
3. Are the only way to secure network resources on FAT and FAT32 volumes, because NTFS permissions are not available on FAT or FAT32 volumes.
Specify the maximum number of users who are allowed to access the shared resource over the network.
