View Full Version : Access windows share from Mac

Jun 25, 2008, 12:44 PM
I have a PC with a shared folder I want to access with my Mac over the wireless.

Just installed Leo last month, and first I had no problem opening the folder, it just pop'ed up in Finder. But now its gone and I have tried to open Finder>GO> Connect to server>PC name, and nothing. If I put a cable in the Mac the drive pops up in Finder just fine.

So it must be something with the wireless settings.

Please help, thanks.

Finder >> Go >> Connect to Server.. >> you must type "SMB://<PC-NAME or IP address>"
If you don't type SMB, the Mac will "assume" AFP as this is the default Apple sharing protocol.
