Remote File Access, Continued

After entering the network path details, we move to the next screen to associate access policies with the Network Place (Figure 4).

In this example, we'll just add the Everyone policy. This brings us to the Summary screen (Figure 5).

Here, we check the settings and then create the network place by clicking the Finish link. After the network place shortcut has been created you will be returned to the main Network Places menu (Figure 6). You will notice from the screenshot that I added all three of my shares.

Since we're already logged in, we can just click on one of the shortcut links shown in Figure 6 and be presented with a GUI that allows us to transfer and manipulate files on the network shares we set up. Otherwise, we'd have to hit the login screen first, click on the Network Places link under the Resource Management menu and then open the desired share (Figure 7).

If this is a little confusing, there's a great Flash demo on the 3SP site that walks you through all the tricks that the Network Places feature can perform.
