Connecting to Shared Folders

Your computer can connect to a number of types of network resources from the Finder, specifically:

  • Macintosh Systems— Other Mac computers that are sharing files via AppleTalk or AppleShare IP.

  • Windows/Linux Computers— If Windows or Linux computers are using SMB or CIFS file sharing (the standard for most Windows networks), your Mac can access the files easily.

  • WebDAV Shares— WebDAV is a cross-platform file sharing solution that uses the standard Web protocols. Your iDisk uses WebDAV.

  • FTP Servers— File Transfer Protocol servers are popular means of distributing software on the Internet. Your Mac OS X machine can connect (read-only) to FTP servers.

  • Linux/BSD NFS Servers— NFS is the Unix standard for file sharing. Your Mac (being Unix!) can obviously talk to them as well!
