I had conjectured that there are two ways to access a share:
1) Map the share to a drive letter on the accessing/client computer.
2) Create a shortcut to the share.
My theory was that:
- the mapping will cause a session to exist all the time
- the shortcut won't cause a session unless the shortcut is used and as long as the folder window is open. When the folder window is closed, the session will go away.
But, I'm having a bit of trouble proving this to be the case. When I create a shortcut, a session is also created (and no shared folder window is open on the "client'). Is there a time after which the session will be dropped? Will the session stay indefinitely?
Refreshing the Shared Folders/Session window doesn't show the session going away right away at least - even after the window on the client is closed.
