7.6. Accessing Network Shares

Other network devices, like workstations and servers, can be set up to share some or all of their resources. Typically, files and folders are marked to let remote users access them. These are called network shares. If your system is configured to access network shares, you can use the file manager to access these shares.

To access network shares, click the Computer button in any file manager window. The window displays the network share types that you can access. Double-click a network resource type then click the network share to access. You might be required to authenticate to the resource by providing a username and password.
