    Ok so this is just a quick question, (I think) but here we have a NAS (Network Access Storage) that everyone can access. Anyways, on a PC you go to network under my computer (or just computer or 7 now) and in there it is listed along with the other computers on the network. That's all good.

    On the Mac side you can see it as well, and that's all good.

    Here is what I am trying to figure out; on a pc in the computer navigation bar you can type addresses. For example the drive was not popping up earlier under the "network", so I just type "//DriveName" into the bar and it opened it up as if I had clicked it.

    How do I do this type of thing on a Mac? type out the physical address of something like that to connect to it?

    Command+K is one way. That brings up a dialog box.
