The most common way to create shared folders is via Windows Explorer. If you have a Windows XP computer that is a member of a Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.0 domain, everything works pretty much as it used to. However, getting file sharing to work on a Windows XP computer that is a member of a workgroup needs a bit of attention. Let’s look at the steps involved in creating a file share on a Windows XP Professional computer that’s a workgroup member:
1. Create a new folder on the desktop and leave the name as New Folder. Right-click on the New Folder icon and click on the Sharing And Security command.
2. This will open the New Folder Properties dialog box with the Sharing tab exposed. Notice that you can’t immediately start sharing the folder. In the Network Sharing And Security area, you have two choices: Network Setup Wizard or If You Understand The Security Risks But Want To Share Files Without Running The Wizard, Click Here. The former option opens a somewhat arcane wizard that’s aimed at home or SOHO users who don’t have system administrators on staff. The wizard helps set up home networking features, such as IP address configuration and workgroup name. As a system admin, you don’t need to use the wizard. Just click on the latter option to start sharing files and folders.
