    I had originally put this in the Mac OS forum, which did not garner a response. Perhaps I should have place this question in the Windows on a Mac forum. :)

    I am trying to figure out how to connect to a network resource through a mac. With my windows pc, I can simply open up windows explorer and type in the path to the resource (e.g. //shared_drive). How can I do this with a mac?

    :apple:+K will bring up the Connect to Server... menu.

    From there, depending on how the share is setup (Samba, etc) you have can connect to it.

    It's recommended to use Samba, if not, you might run into issues.

    So to view the share, type this in: smb://<your_share_name_here>. Hit enter, and it should attempt to connect. If there's a login to it, it'll prompt you for that.

    If it doesn't work, check your share permissions and settings.
