I am going to help a friend network 3 pcs ( 2 are XP and 1 Win7) together. He is currently using Clear WixFBR-117 for his internet connection and it has a built in router.
He is wanting to have a program that is installed on 2 of the pcs access files used by that program on the third. The files will all be uploaded onto the third pc and he will need to be able to open those files remotely via the other two pcs. ( there is a reason for this setup - assume it wont change )
All 3 pcs are currently connected to the internet via the Clear Modem mentioned above. I have a decent pc knowledge but would like specific steps to make this happen. Is it as simple as "Sharing" the folder on the third pc so all others can access it?
Can someone please give me specific steps to allow 2 pcs access a specific folder on a third pc. (this will be done within a windows program ) The only networking that has been done is that they are all accessing the internet via the Clear modem mentioned above.
