    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to view the internet explorer history folder on another computer (both XP and 98SE) across a LAN, I have access to the computer but when I browse there it shows the history on My Computer (XP) not the ones I am wanting to look at.

    Can anyone help me on this one.
    Cheers
    Porker

    I would imagine that you would have to change the permissions on the host computer to make the History folder a shared folder.

    I don't know if it's possible as what you explain is the trick to see the real content of IE's cache/history on a PC across a LAN.

    Sorry for resurrecting a terribly old thread but thought this might be helpful to others.
    I've never had the need to view the History on another computer until today. Now - I'm sure there are other ways to do it but I found this cute little util that is small, simple, easy and works like a charm!
