    err

    windows uses \ to differentiate folders and such
    unix uses /

    netbios uses \\ to signify a computer adderss (\\computername\sharename)

    the internet, because mainly built upon unix in its infamy uses // as its prime seperator
    protocol://server:port/folder/file.extension
    ofcourse these are decided by your web browser i believe, as other applications can install additional protocol pointers i think)

    I think I better let you see th Question,

    You use a windows 98 computer named comp 1 on windows 2000 network. You have granted permision to view the files in the doc folders on the comp 2 computer, which is the same domain.
    You want to enter the appropriate address into the address box in network neighbourhood to open the docs folder on the comp 2 computer. which of the following is the appropriate address Entry.

    a. \\computer1\docs
    b. //computer1/docs
    c. \\computer2\docs
    d. //computer2/docs
    e. \docs\\computer1
    f. \docs\\computer2
    g. \computer1\\docs
    f. \computer2\\docs

    After you gave me the info I have came up with A what do you think,

    Thanks again.
    Peter.

    Attaboy :thumbleft

    Double backslash ( \\) denotes the target machine, single backslash is the path to the target folder. Another example of one of those things that is only really second nature when used on a daily basis/ in a work environment.

    Note, get into the habit of NOT leaving network folders shared unless necessary, as this is a potential security breach. I have shares on several servers that I only "share" as required (eg when I need to map a network drive to them), then immediately "unshare" when done.

    HTH :D
