Below is the scenario at hand. To keep things short, I'm looking for a way to access the contents of the 1TB external drive from all three laptops shown in the diagram. Basically wanted to have the drive show up in Windows Explorer (as z:/ or whatnot).
From laptop 1 and 3, the drive is connected through two routers and a hub. This concerns me a bit, not sure what sort of firewall difficulties I'm facing. All three laptops are either Windows XP or Windows 7.
What's the best way to go about this?
