    How do I make a NAS a sharepoint in OSX Leopard Server?

    It does not show up as a volume. How do I properly mount it so it will show up?

    thanks!

    You have a network storage device that you have files on that you'd like to mount under OS X?

    Is the NAS a Unix/Linux back end? Basically, are the shares SMB/CIFS? Or NFS? Or what?

    If you have the name or IP address, you can try:

    Finder > Go > Connect to Server > smb://NASname/sharename

    Or nfs://NASname/sharename

    You'll need to have login credentials to access those files, and it will ask for them, and then let you save it in the keychain.

    Hope that helps. :)

    Does this have anything to do with Microsoft SharePoint server?

    An interesting question ~ I was thinking the same thing. So here goes mine, can OS X Server seemlessly support M$ Sharepoint directories and sites?

    Doesn't the latest version of Mac Office come with some Sharepoint integration software?

    I've read it somewhere.

    Yes, it does. Pretty nice file system integration utility to access sharepoint site libraries and Office Live Workspaces.

    Nice find. How'd you access this on a Mac? Are you using MSOffice:Mac? Also are you on a particular domain and what OSX version are you using??

    Thanks.
