Folder Sharing Right Approach
Posted on 2006-03-26
We have a network (LAN) of around 100 PCs connceted together under a same WorkGroup . Many times PCs user are required to Share their Folders with their other departmental users . To share Folders earlier we allowed the users to Share Folders using NetBui protocol . But this resulted into following problems :
a) Netwrok Traffic increased very high . While analysing the Network Traffic we found there was huge network traffic for UDP data pacakets .
b) If we run netwatch command on PC then found that many users are connected to the individual desktop
c) It also created Virus related issues . Although we had installed Trend-Micro officescan on the Desktop .
Looking into these we had stopped Folder Sharing .
Kindly guide us that what is the right method for Sharing the folders .As it is very much required to our users .
