    ok, we're trying to move a file from a computer's desktop into a networked folder on another computer but it wont let us. How can we move it there...maybe with the terminal?

    maybe it said "error 37"....not sure. I wasnt at the computer

    How about a bit more info??? What kind of network, which OS's on the systems, are you able to connect to the shared folder without issue?? How mcuh data are you trying to move at a time?? Have you tried moving less/smaller chunks?

    once you have mounted the network folder it should appear in the terminal under "/Volumes" Basically just use a "mv (filename) /Volumes/Destination" command.
