Below is an old article I found, well I don’t know. As I was cleaning out some old files, I ran across this copy. I am not sure how relevant it is but under Windows XP, I know that the programs you call are still available. Here it is, summarized.

Are you sharing any files or printers in Windows? If so, here is how you can access them.
- Open your command prompt by going to Start > Run > and typing ‘cmd’ (without the single quotes)
- Type NBTSTAT – A IPADDRESS (example: NBTSTAT -A 192.1.1.00)
- You will notice that computers that share resources will usually have port 139, so make note of that
- In the same prompt, type Net View \\IPADDRESS (example: Net View \\127.0.0.1)
You’ll receive something like
Sharename Type Comment A Disk Floppy C Disk C:\Drive CDROM Disk CD-ROM Read Only
This tells you what is being shared. To connected to the computer, you would type a command in this form
NET USE P: \\IPADDRESS\SHARENAME (example: NET USE P: \\22.214.171.124\CDROM\)
“P:” creates a virtual drive P on your computer. It may take some time to connect and if may use quite a bit of resources depending on the OS that you are running.

That concludes the summary of what I found. I’ll probably keep this posted for a small while since I’m not sure how useful this really is.
