    NETWATCH.EXE

    In previous versions of Windows, NETWATCH.EXE was a program for "seeing" which machines on your LAN were "using" files or folders on your computer. Does anyone know what the XP mechanism is for doing this. Network Connections app doesn't seem to show other machines.

    you can do it from the command line with NET commands or use the GUI in the computer management console. (look in administration under control panel)

    Thanx for the reply, MaryJ! Do you mind telling me specifically where in Computer Management the GUI is? I know I'm missing it but.....

    Never mind! Sorry for the dumb-ness, but I guess I found it under SESSIONS and OPEN FILES. The open files key "lies" quite a bit however. I went to another machine on my LAN and accessed a text file, but open files shows all kinds of files that I must have "cursored" over but didn't open. Anyway, looks like the SESSIONS tab is what tells you what you need to know. THNX AGAIN!
