NT Gatekeeper: Looking at Share Access-Control Settings

How can I look at all the shares defined in my Windows NT 4.0 domain and their access-control settings?

File shares are a common cause of security incidents. When share access-control settings are too lax, unauthorized people can gain access to sensitive information. Sysinternals recently released the ShareEnum freeware tool, which is available from http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/shareenum.shtml. To use ShareEnum, you must be logged on as a domain administrator. For each share, the ShareEnum GUI shows the share name, local path, domain, share permissions, and permissions for the Everyone group. The tool lists both file and print shares.
