Networking is my main bug-bear. It is, in my opinion, the only thing Windows does better. Being able to browse networked machines as if they were folders on my own computer is much easier than having to mount and unmount shared volumes individually to access them.spicyapple said:OSX has many faults? Care to share some of yours?
Nope, it's shareware. What I'm asking for shouldn't cost a thing and should be built-in to the operating system. I'm not really worried (don't have to be when I'm not currently networked to anything) but I think Apple really need to re-examine how Macs network.balamw said:
I agree. What would be nice is if the Mac and Active Directory got along as well as Active Directory and XP do, though I suppose that really has more to do with Microsoft...Chundles said:I think Apple really need to re-examine how Macs network.
Agreed. Mac users were happily networking their computers and printers when Windows users thought that networks were NBC, CBS, and ABC. My God, Microsoft thinks that an IP-printer is a local! If you are having trouble networking your Mac, you are probably trying too hard.dpaanlka said:I actually always thought networking was one of the Macintosh strong points. We've had very easy-to-configure networks since like the 80s. They always just work. So what if you have to mount and unmount remote drives... this isn't that much of a sacrifice to get always-working, easy to use networking.
No regrets... my networking needs are a dream on this OS... much easier then what I have to do under XP... I might add over and over again...psychofreak said:
I am pretty happy with OS X, it is a nice OS, extremely userfriendly! Setup network takes almost no effort (for those who complain, try windows 95, then you will know the real pain).psychofreak said:
