To publish a network folder:

  2. On the Select Item Type wizard page, select Folder on the file system and click Next.
  3. On the Select Server Type page, select Terminal Server and click Next.
  4. On the Publish From page, select the server(s) to publish from. Note that if you have just one terminal server, the Publish From page will not appear.
  5. On the UNC Folder wizard page, specify the usual application properties.
  6. In the UNC path field, enter the UNC path of the folder you wish to publish. Click the [...] button to browse for a folder (it may take some time for the Browse for Folder dialog to open).

  7. Click Finish to publish the folder and close the wizard.
