Chapter 27. Working with Windows-Based S... > Accessing and Sharing Windows Resour...

Accessing and Sharing Windows Resources

Tiger provides integrated browsing of Windows shares directly in the Finder just like any other network volume. In addition, the system enables you to serve your files and printers to Windows clients—all within the Tiger GUI. These features are provided by the underlying Samba software suite, which we'll look at later in the chapter.

Browsing and Mounting Windows Shares

To browse available Windows shares, open the Network level in the Finder (Go, Network, or Shift-Command-K), as shown in Figure 27.1. Windows workgroups, domains, and computers will be mixed in with Appletalk Zones, and so on. Figure 27.1 shows a number of workgroups, including Workgroup, West, and South.
