    Just wanted you command-line hackers to know that I've successfully compiled and installed the GNU filetools. I came over from using mostly Linux and I didn't like the 'quirky' (to me) behaviour that I was getting from the tools included in OS X PB. If you have the Darwin developer tools, you...

    Access Windows Shares Under Mac OS X in 10 Easy Steps

    When I first started working on this, I noticed that there was a (Yellow Box) GUI that came with the OS X Server Sharity distribution, but running it came up with an error. Well...I've been in contact with Christian Starkjohann at Objective Development and he's recompiled it under the PB and...

    Access Windows Shares Under Mac OS X in 10 Easy Steps

    As far as the permissions are concerned, I'm afraid that I can't be of too much help without seeing what perms you have on your files. Try using chown to change ownership of the alias and/or sharity.init. Also be sure that they are chmod +x. Could someone who can't get it to work do an 'ls'...

    Windows Shares

    Well, you should at least give it a go - if for no other reason than to find out if it works! One note about using AppleShare on NT - it's notoriously buggy. I've heard reports of memory leaks and crashes. Oh, and you said you didn't know the difference between "sharing" and "mounting"...

    Connecting to windows shares...

    Samba doesn't come with smbmount (a.k.a. SMBFS) because SMBFS is actually a seperate development effort and so far has only been done for Linux. A *BSD port is in the works, but I couldn't get it to compile under OS X PB. I did, however, find an alternative. You can get the scoop in my HOWTO...
