Hi,

  Map a drive to the machine that you want to browse. Then if you look at the JFileChooser dialog, this drive will be displayed and using which you can select the file in that machine.

Is mapping to a drive the only answer? Can JFileChooser browse network like open a Window Explorer where you can see Desktop, My Computer , and importantly Network Neighborhood.

For those who interested in JFileChooser, mapping to network can solve the problem that I ask. But if you feel it's tedious and want something that can browse the network neighborhood directly, then go for Java 1.4. But there is some problem with JFileChooser 1.4 such as very SLOW. I never try. You can try in out.
