File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks

The File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component allows other computers on a network to access resources on your computer by using a Microsoft network.

This component is installed and enabled by default for all VPN connections. However, this component needs to be enabled for PPPoE and dial-up connections. It is enabled per connection 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.

For information about configuring the File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component, see Configure File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks. For information about sharing folders, see Share a folder or drive.
