  /usr/bin/X11/dxfileshare

DESCRIPTION

  Use the File Sharing application, dxfileshare, to:

    +  Export (or share) local UNIX directories	to the network

    +  Stop exporting UNIX local directories to	the network

    +  Specify which directories mounted from the network are to be remounted
       every time the system is	rebooted, that is, add an entry	to the
       /etc/fstab file

    +  Add, change, or delete NFS entries from the /etc/exports	file

    +  Share local UNIX	directories with a personal computer (PC) when
       Advanced	Server for UNIX	is installed on	your system

    +  Display local directories that are shared (exported) with the network

    +  Display network mounts (directories that	can be mounted from the	net-
       work)

  Manager from the following categories:
