Chapter 16. Networking > Connecting to Another Computer for File Sharing

Connecting to Another Computer for File Sharing

Once network and sharing options have been set up for sharing, you can connect to another computer and access its files. Mac OS X offers two ways to do this:

  • The Go menu’s Connect to Server command (Figure 22) prompts you to enter the address of the server you want to connect to. You enter a user name and password to connect, choose the volume you want to access, and display its contents in Finder windows.

    Figure 22. The Go menu.

  • The network browser enables you to browse the computers on the network—from the Finder (Figure 23) and from within Open and Save dialogs. You open an alias for another computer and you’re prompted for a user name and password. Enter login information, choose a volume, and work with the files just as if they were on your computer.

    Figure 23. Clicking the Network icon in the Sidebar displays the network browser.
