Browsing other PC's History Folders problem
I've got a small home Lan, 3 Pc's. When I go into network neigbourhood and look in a machines history folder in their windows directory, it shows my history, not theirs, even though in the location bar it shows \\pc-name\c-drive\WIN98\Hiatory. Any ideas why this happens? Thanks, Jack.
Just out of curiosity, are you sharing an internet connection with a proxy server? If that's the case, it would make sense to me if the history is one in the same. They're not actually connecting to the internet directly; they're connecting to the proxy server which is connecting to the internet.
Just a thought
They are actually going through a proxy, I'm runing ICS on two WIN98 SE machines. So, does my own history folder on my pc contain the history of all of the visited sites for every user? Thanks, Jack.
If your computer is the one with the internet access, then it seems it would make sense. However, I could very well be wrong.
Jack, I've noticed the same thing. If you are using Netscape, you can look at someone else's cache directory, but the IE Temporary Internet Files directory (which I'm sure is related to the History directory) always shows the local machine's. This is true on machines that I KNOW have different history files (because I went to the machines and looked).
Unfortunately I don't have a solution, just a confirmation. There is some information at http://support.microsoft.com/support.../Q177/6/15.ASP that might help though. It says something about mapping the drive instead of navigating to it. I can't try it because I'm not on a peer-to-peer network right now.
