Chapter 15. Connecting Windows Clients t... > Connecting to Network Resources

15.5. Connecting to Network Resources

One of the biggest reasons to join a domain is to access resources on the domain, such as the printer down the hall or some documents that you need to work on. You could access company photos, slide shows, and other media needed to make a marketing campaign. Whatever your need, the point is that you don't need to have these items and devices hooked or stored directly on your client machine. In fact, having them stored on the network is ideal because they are more secure there (access is centrally controlled, and ideally the files would be backed up regularly). Examples of network resources include the following:

  • Printers

  • Shared folders and files

  • Wireless devices (such as wireless printers)

  • Services (such as Certificate Services)

  • Other computers
