when installing and configuring windows. Networking. There are different methods for organizing and managing computers to utilize. Network Resource is including workgroups, home groups and domains.
Creating work groups is a way to organize computers and share Resource is in a peer to peer network.
Windows Vista 788.1 and 10 all support work groups, all computers in the workgroup, our peers with no computer having control over another.
A work group has a limited number of computers, all in the same local network or submit and each with a set of user accounts. An account on a computer is required in order for a user to log on
users within the same work group can share. Local networked resource is such a CE folders, files and printers if the systems are configured to do so.
The default workgroup name is work group and should be changed for an extra layer of security.
Home groups are designed to be used in home or small office networks, but there is not a limit to the number of computers that conjoined home groups require. Windows seven or higher
computers on the home network must belong to a work group and may also belong to a home group.
Similar toe workgroups home groups are also considered to be a peer to peer network, with some folder sharing options enabled automatically.
A user password is created when a user creates a new home group, which is required by any new computer. Joining the group,
a home group, is fairly easy to set up through the Wizard and his men to make resource sharing in a home or small business simple. The Mains air used for larger networks where one or more computers are a server,
computers on the same domain can be on different local networks.
The main user accounts are controlled by a central server, meaning users who have an account in the domain can log into any computer on that domain without requiring an account on each computer.
There may be hundreds to thousands of computers and a domain, as such changes users are permitted to make on a computer are typically limited to help administrators maintain consistency among computers.
Computers running windows on a network must be part of a work group or domain.
Computers on home or small office networks may also be part of the whole group, if desired.
The purpose of having computers or users on the same network whether work group, home group or domain, is the access common resource is such a xfiles and printers.
Computers can connect to shared folders or printers a couple different ways. A user can enter the direct path of the share in the run dialogue box, accessible under the START menu or depending on the version of Windows. My network places or network and sharing center allows users to browse to the available shared resource is on their network.
Another option is to map a network drive.
In this case, the user is dedicating a drive on their computer to access the network resource. Just as the D Drive maybe used to access the CD or DVD drive. A drive letter is set up for the network share.
The map Network drive option depends on the version of Windows for Windows 10. It can be accessed by right clicking on the network within the file Explorer window.
Once selected, simply choose a drive letter that is not in use and into the path to the share.
Leaving the reconnect that Sinan checked will ensure the drive is mapped to this resource every time the computer is long gone,
shared printers are access in a very similar fashion. Users can add browse to or map drives to available printers through the devices and printers. Option within the control panel, which will vary depending on the version of Windows.
What resource is air shared and with whom depend on the access controls established by an administrator or owner of that resource.
Computers are grouped in order to manage resource sharing and determined based on the considerations, such as the number of computers, the operating system versions, the computers air using controlling access to individual network resource is and whether central administration is desired.
