Advantages of networking between Windows® 7 and Windows® Vista®
A network connection enables the user to connect systems together. The purpose of the network connection is file sharing between two systems. Two systems can connect with each other either through a wireless connection or through a wired connection. Resources such as printers can be shared between systems connected together. Windows 7 and Windows Vista are two operating systems from Windows. You can establish a connection between these two different operating systems. The major difference between advanced networking which is the requirement in Windows 7 and the standard networking used before is that there are two levels of security that are required. You can use the sharing permission to allow the users to access data from the system. While the administrator part of a users rights will allow access due to the presence of the UAC, it is often required to add specific access permission for individual users as this will permit access in a non elevated state.
