what is the network path

Answers

  • Network path or Shared path is a location where you can store files and other resources like your local path. One benefit of network share is that the files can be shared among multiple users.

    Example of local path is C:\SomeSharedFolder

    Network path example will be

    \\ComputerNameOrIpAddress\ShareName

    You can share a local path as a share. For doing this you need to enable file sharing. Right click the folder you want to share and select sharing and security.

    Once you have done this you can access this shared folder from another machine which is in the same domain. Don't forget to give necessary permission for accessing the shared path.

  • Hi love_your_eyes,

     

    Based on my understanding, the network path you referenced is indeed URL, so you want to know the differences between UNC and URL.

    You can get more information about them referring the links below:

    URL:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Resource_Locator

    UNC: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Path_(computing)

     

    Let me know if this helps.
