ABSTRACT
Reading and/or writing to resources on the network (folders, files, printers, etc.) as if they were attached locally. Either built into the operating system or a separate file sharing component, network transparency implies that there is no additional effort required by the user or by the application to access a remote device than a local one. They all appear as one pool of resources. See file sharing protocol.
