WON misconceptions

There are a few misconceptions about World O‘ Networking floating around out there.
First of all, you don’t need the WON setup tool itself to browse Windows shares — you can just use cifsmount or ezmount as described elsewhere on the Tip Server.
Second, to be able mount MS shares from BeOS, you don’t need to start da_hood or ksocketd. If you know the IP address and MS server and shared resource names, you can do this task using only cifsmount/ezmount.
Third, if you experience strange misbehaviour (100 % processor load, browsing errors etc.), try commenting out the ‚ksocketd‘ string in /boot/beos/system/boot/Netscript.
