Mapping a Network Drive
Use the GETSMB program to map your RCS home directory and various public directories via sambasrv as easily as you can on a Mobile Computing Program laptop or from a public PC.
Create a new folder named getsmb on your PC, and then click on your operating system below and save the file to this new folder.
Create a shortcut on your desktop which points to the *.exe file in the getsmb folder. To do this, right-click on the *.exe file and select Create Shortcut. If you want to rename the shortcut, right-click on it and select Rename. If you wish to change the default icon for your getsmb shortcut, right-click on the icon, and select the Properties option. Click on the Shortcut tab, and then the Change Icon... button. For a selection of icons, enter C:\\windows\system\shell32.dll in the File name: field. Left-click on the new icon, and then click OK. Finally, drag the shortcut icon to the desktop.
