    I have a basic knowledge of setting up a LAN but still would like to know more.
    What I normally do to setup a LAN:
    1)get all computers on same workgroup
    2)enable file & printer sharing for microsoft networks (network adapter
    properties)
    3)set IP & DNS to obtain addresses automatically
    4)enable sharing on specific folders that I want shared
    5)enable remote assistance (only if desired since high risk)

    When I share a folder for the first time on any of the computers -- a shared
    documents properties window appears saying that for security reasons remote
    access is disabled. If I want to enable this feature I should run the
    network setup wizard.

    I'd like to know exactly what else this wizard is doing that I haven't
    already done?
    How would I navigate to manually enable this feature?
