I have a Windows 2008 server with various software packages installed on it.

I want to know what network shares my server is sharing (and I want to know that from within the server, not by trying to access the shares from another computer).

Does anyone know how to do that?

Start -> Run -> compmgmt.msc -> OK.

Computer Management (Local) -> System Tools -> Shared Folders -> Shares.

This will show you all the current shares on the system as well as allow you to control them, change permissions, modify access, etc.

Also shows opened shared by which users. –  surfasb Jul 11 '11 at 18:02
    
Thanks for the screenshot Moab. –  music2myear Jul 11 '11 at 19:12

From a command prompt, enter the command:

net share

This will show all shares on the system, including hidden.

start > run

\\127.0.0.1

will do the trick

PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL NOT SHOW HIDDEN SHARES.

Actually, that does not do the trick. Hidden shares (ADMIN$ C$ IPC$ print$, etc.) are not shown. –  KCotreau Jul 11 '11 at 15:57
