Net Share lets you connect remote computers to the machine control over the network, to transfer files to and from the machine’s User Data directory. These are the settings you need to adjust to set up Net Share. Your network administrator can give you the correct values to use. You must enable remote sharing, local sharing, or both to use Net Share.
After you change these settings to the correct values, press F4 to begin Net Share.
CNC Network Name - The name of the machine on the network. The default value is HAASMachine, but you must change this so that each machine on the network has a unique name.
Domain / Workgroup Name - The name of the domain or workgroup the machine belongs to.
Remote Net Share Enabled - When this is ON, the machine shows the contents of the shared network folder in the Network tab in the Device Manager.
Remote Server Name - The remote network name or IP address of the computer that has the share folder.
Remote Share Path - The name and location of the shared remote network folder.
Remote User Name - The name to use to log in to the remote server or domain. User names are case-sensitive and cannot contain spaces.
Remote Password - The password to use to log in to the remote server. Passwords are case-sensitive.
Local Net Share Enabled - When this is ON, the machine allows access to the User Data directory to computers on the network (password required).
Local User Name - Displays the user name to log into the control from a remote computer. The default value is haas; you cannot change this.
Local Password - The password for the user account on the machine.
Net Share Example
In this example, you have established a net share connection with the Local Net Share Enabled setting turned ON. You want to view the contents of the machine’s User Data folder on a networked PC.
- On the PC, click the START menu and select the RUN command. You can also hold the Windows key and press R.
- At the Run prompt, type (2) backslashes (\\) and then the machine’s IP address or CNC Network Name.
- Click OK or press Enter.
- Type the machine’s Local User Name (haas) and Local Password in the appropriate fields, and then click OK or press Enter.
- A window appears on the PC with the machine’s User Data folder displayed. You can interact with the folder as you would with any other Windows folder.
