redirector

In a LAN, software that routes workstation (client) requests for data to the server. In a Windows network, the redirector program is added to the PC to intercept requests for files and printers and direct them to the appropriate remote device if applicable. Starting with Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0, the redirector recognizes UNC names as well as drive letters that have been mapped to remote servers. The counterpart in NetWare is known as the Requester. See UNC and drive mapping.
