I want to do what the thread title says. This way I can access the same user files from whichever Mac I happen to be using at the time. I have several Macs in different parts of my house. I have each one run the same app (easy) but accessing the same data files (not so easy). The apps would include Office2011 (with Outlook). Do I have to use OS X Lion server ? When I used Win7 all I did was use Mapped Folders (easy). How do I do this in OS X ? Thanks.
