    Upgraded to Panther today - nice look and feel, but ...
    We use a file server running on Redhat Linux. I can't access that server from Panther. It works fine from Jaguar 10.2.6.

    Any help out there?

    First of all, are you sharing through NFS or Samba on the Linux box?

    SMB works just fine in Panther as well, but with all the usual suckiness. :)

    I am afraid this is a subject I don't know enough about. Usually, I have a system administrator working on these things, but he is out of the office until monday. So, all I can tell you is, that on Jaguar, I connect using a command line starting with afp://, but it also works with smb://, which I guess is Samba. Samba did not work as well for us, so we use the other one. Is that NFS? Sorry the studid questions, but I'm a designer, not a sys admin...

    couple more questions that I forgot:
    1. Do I need any updates on my Linux server for Panther compatibility?
    2. Or - how else than through the Cmd-K Command can I connect to the server?
