5308-32: Synchronizing network folders

V

Vista Tester

I've got two machines on a network - one running Vista 5308/32, the other XP
Professional. Each has a folder named shared0. Is it possible to set
things up so that placing a file in the Vista shared0 folder also updates
the XP folder?

I see that Vista has a network folder synch capability - but not sure how to
use it. Can anybody point me to a ref doc?

Not sure if anyone's got any documentation out...

If you try this link:
http://www.vistabase.co.uk/subcats/submitquestion/feedback.php and describe
what you'd like to see in detail, then I can get an article written up and
put on VistaBase within 24 hours :o)
