Is there a trick to connecting to an EMC-NAS share?

Posted:

I am on a corporate network and need to get to an EMC-NAS share. I know what the server name is but when I try and connect to it, I get an error. I know very little about network shares and how they are set up, but before the share was moved to EMC-NAS I was able to connect to it on the iBook as long as I had permissions to the share.



I can connect to the NAS share without a problem from my PC when logged on to the network, but I can't connect to it from my iBook when I am logged onto the network.



Is there some trick to connecting to a NAS share?

    No trick per se but do you know what protocol you are trying? I'm assuming it's a Windows share and not AFP. Try using this:



    cifs://server_name_or_IP/share_name



    or



    smb://server_name_or_IP/share_name

    Could also be NFS (nfs://) as well, but I would guess that most large NAS boxes come with dual protocols now... I know NetApp didn't use to. CIFS was an add-on.

    Thank you Outsider and mikef



    This protocol worked: smb://server_name_or_IP/share_name



    Much appreciated!
