that are connected to a PC on the same network? I have setup networking as per the networking thread, and can get to individual folders that are shared on the pc. but, for example some network DRIVES that are connected and SHARED, I cannot connect to them. I get this ALIAS error. What is the alias anyway? But, I have some NAS connected, and the drives are listed as to be shared. they show up in the list of things the imac will connect to, but when I try to connect I get a LOGIN (there shouldn't be a login) and then a cannot connect dialogue and request for the alias, or delete or repair the alias. what is this alias and is there a differant protocol for connecting to remote DRIVES?
