Sharity

The Sharity SMB/CIFS client offers transparent access to Windows and Samba servers from the Mac OS X Finder. Unlike the built-in SMB/CIFS client, Sharity offers a wide range of customization and integration with Mac OS X. If you need more control over your connection, Sharity is the way to go. It can be used to mount volumes on a local area network, or anywhere on the Internet.

Sharity acts as a go-between for the SMB/CIFS protocol and NFS. To Mac OS X, the mounted volumes are nothing but NFS mounts. The power of this becomes apparent when you realize that not only does this give access to stored Windows files, but also to storage areas for Mac OS X software. In fact, using Sharity and Samba on a cluster of Mac OS X machines is actually a more powerful file sharing solution than the Mac OS X built-in Shared Folders.
