Mapping network drives

  Gary Wood 18:24 20 Jul 2006

I have files on my computer in the office which I want to share with other staff.

My computer connects to a large university network. I have a router in my office with two computers connected to it. The router has an IP address allocated by the University, and the two machines connected to it have addresses allocated by the router, in the range 192.168.0.X.

Between the two machines connected to the router I have successfully been able to set up a file-share by mapping a drive to \\192.168.0.X\Files.

However, I now need to be able to map the drive from another computer elsewhere in the building which connects directly into the university network and has an IP address in the university range. I cannot therefore map the drive at 192.168.0.X.

Can anyone advise me how I can achieve this?
