Chapter 1 Using Netshare

iPlanet Web Server clients can use Netshare to collaborate on projects by directly accessing, editing, and managing files on remote servers. Netshare, through its many services, provides sophisticated features for server clients, such as file management, editing and publishing, and access to Web Publisher features such as search and access control.

Netshare provides you with a personal home page for storing, sharing, and managing their server documents. From your home page, you can also obtain information about how you are defined in the server's user directory, such as your name, password, and telephone extension.

This file is the starting point for a your workspace on the remote server and is what other users first see when they access your home page. As the owner of the home page, you or your server administrator may want to provide some explanation of what other files, folders, and services are available through the home page and display some navigational links to route other users through the site.

This is the default set of files that is installed in a Netshare home directory:
