|Now that you have told me about server name what is the share name. I suspect that it is anything I want.|
The reason I am trying to get everything straight in my head is that I am helping out at my lodge. They have three computers on a network (I don't know what kind of network) that they would like to be able to pass files back and forth. Also one of the computers has a large external drive that is not used. I want to use it to backup all the computers. Hence I want, ultimately, to have drive sharing.
The computer names are now "LousComputer", "Bill1234567" and "Juliesbaby". I want to change these names to "One', "Two" and "Three". HOWEVER, I am afraid this might screw up the only drive that is shared.
Will changing a computer name at START....CONTROL PANEL.... SYSTEM also change it throughout the network?
Am I correct that setting up the sharing and mapping of drives is to do the sharing first and then the mapping.
I wish all the shared/mapped drives to appear in "MY COMPUTER' on each computer.
Hope I have been clear,
