Other Connections

Connect to Server, or Command+K in the Finder, is Mac OS X’s replacement for the older operating system’s Chooser. You can access it by clicking Go>Connect to Server. Connect to Server is Mac OS X’s way to make full use of networked machines and files. You can browse to see which AFP (AppleTalk File Protocol) machines are on the network. With Connect to Server, you can connect to any computer using AFP, TCP/IP, WebDAV, SMB/CIFS, or FTP.

Figure 392: Information About Available Connections to Other Computers

 


For AFP servers and Macs using Personal File Sharing, you have to type in the target’s address like this:

afp://ComputerName.CompanyName.com

To see the Personal File Sharing address for a Mac OS X computer, open Sharing preferences and select Personal File Sharing. The address will be listed.

In order to connect to SMB/CIFS (Windows) servers and shared folders, type the DNS name like this:

smb://DNSname/sharename

And if that does not work, try this

\\DNSname\sharename

Or

smb://workgroup;server/sharedlocation.

To connect to an NFS server, enter the DNS name and pathname like this:

nfs://DNSname/pathname

To connect to an FTP server without a name and password, type the DNS name or IP address for the server like this:

ftp://DNSname

You can also specify your login name using like this:

ftp://user@DNSname

If you use this form, a dialog appears for you to enter your password. You can then type in both your user name and password using this form:

ftp://user:password@DNSname

Note: From the Finder you connect to FTP servers with read-only access. To be able to copy files to an FTP server, you must use another program such as Safari or Captain FTP.

To connect to a WebDAV server, type the DNS name and pathname like this:

http://DNSname/pathname

Alternatively, use your iDisk settings in Connect to Server and change the names.
