Connecting to Shared Folders

Your Mac OS X 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. The .Mac iDisk storage uses WebDAV.

  • FTP servers— File Transfer Protocol servers are a popular means of distributing software on the Internet.

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