Can you share a server share from a client?

    Hi

    Ok I named my domain .local before we had a Mac. Now the thing wont connect. It will connect to all the other clients but not the server, even if I type in the IP address of the server as follows

    smb://192.1681.15

    Asks for username and password and then rejuects them. I know their right

    So because I can connect to other clients and those clients are win2k and can connect to the server group shared, can I then share that mapped drive out so the Mac can connect it?

  2. You can't "share a share" - you can imagine the security implications of
    this were it possible.

    The main problem is the use of the .local domain namespace in conjuction
    with the Rendevouz protocol. There are several ways to work around this,
    but one of the more straightforward is this:


    1. Open the Terminal program located in the Utilities folder.

    2. Change directories to the /etc/resolver/ directory by typing the
    following
    commands, pressing Enter after each line:

    Cd /
    Cd etc/resolver

    3. Log on as the root (administrator) user by typing "sudo tcsh" and then
    typing
    the administrator password for the system.

    4. Edit the local file using the text editor of your choice. To use pico (a
    simple
    text editor), type "pico local".

    5. Replace the nameserver IP address listed with the correct IP address of
    a DNS
    server on the .LOCAL domain in which you want the Mac OS X system to access.

    6. Replace the port number with 53.

    7. Save the file by pressing Ctrl+X, and then Y, and then Enter.

    You could do something similar to this with Netware but not Windows.
