To map a network drive, use the right mouse button to click Network Neighborhood, and then click Map Network Drive. Type \\computername\sharename, where computername is the name of the computer sharing the folder or printer, and sharename is the name of the shared folder or printer.
NOTE: Binding File and Printer Sharing to the external adapter and opening the SMB ports on the ICS host makes all shared folders and printers accessible from the Internet and creates a possible security issue. Although ICS is not designed to function as a firewall or provide strong firewall protection, shared files and folders possess a reasonable level of security if configured in the manner described in this article.
Q: How Do I Use AOL With Internet
If you use different AOL accounts on an ICS host computer and multiple ICS client computers, use the AOL dial-up program to establish a connection to the Internet on the computer.

Any ICS client computers running AOL 3.0 or 4.0 cannot establish a new connection until the ICS host computer disconnects.
