I've created an SMB connection between my PC (Windows 8.1) and Macbook Pro (OS X 10.9). I have set the correct permissions and the file sharing works fine, but I'm having issues connecting from the Macbook Pro (sort of). I have a desktop shortcut for the shared drive/folder, and when I double click the desktop shortcut the shared folder opens up as it should. Now, I added that desktop shortcut to the dock (drag/drop), but the shared drive/folder doesn't open from the dock at all. When I click it, nothing happens. When I right click and select open, nothing happens. I don't know why I can access the folder via the desktop shortcut, but not the dock shortcut. Since I dragged/dropped the shortcut into the dock, shouldn't the behaviour be identical? Help?
