Mac & Windows 2000 Server


J

James

I have 3 Macs in a Windows 2000 server environment... I
would like to grant the Macs access to shared folders on
one of the 2000 servers. I have read that I could
possibly make a current shared folder a Macintosh volume
so that Macs and PC could see its contect. Can someone
please help.

Thanks

Hi James!

Believe it or not, the Windows 2000 Server Help (found in the Start menu) is
actually very helpful in explaining how to do this. Look for something like
"create Macintosh volume" or "File Services for Macintosh".

To give you a little headsup, Mac volumes are the equivalent of Windows
shares. To create a volume or share means to take an existing folder (or
directory) and publish it to the network. Therefore to create or even delete
a Windows share or Mac volume means that you're not actually manipulating
the folder or its contents, just the accessibility to different client
computers.

Also, think of Shares and Volumes as two different front doors to the same
information. Each front door can have its own permissions for entering into
the server, but once inside, the permissions for the content are the same.

Hope this helps! bill
