How to access a shared folder from a Windows® computer
On the system that will access the shared folder, open a File Explorer.
In the address bar, enter the name of the MyCrypNet access that shares the folder, preceded by 2 backslashes.
In this example, the MyCrypNet access that shares the folder is OFFICE-DESKTOP (according to the naming convention available here). You must enter in the address bar:
Validate the request with the “Enter” key, or with the arrow button on the right.
An authentication window opens, asking to log in with both a username (ALICE, according to the naming convention available here) and a password (ALICE-PASSWORD).
Once authentication is successful, you can access the list of shares and read the files.
This makes it possible to use the built-in file-sharing feature of Windows®, without installing third-party software and preserving all the benefits of your MyCrypNet private network: security, speed and simplicity.
