iMac X.1 network to NT problem

By carl ·
We just upgraded this new machine to os X.1 and attempted to mount an NT file share just as all the other Macs in the office running 9.6 currently do.

Problem: Mac will allow me to connect to server by finding the NT share, choose and logon, but the fun stops there. There is no icon created to the desktop and no apparent way to browse the new share. When I try to connect again, the server choice is greyed out as if already connected. I can't figure this out. Any suggestions before I roof test this bad boy? Logons are right and it can see and logon to all other Macs just fine. Also, ot using SMB (not installed). HELP!!!!

Could it be that it is mounting, but not on the desktop the way you are used to? Perhap you should try opening a new finder window, it may show up there below your HD's icon. I all depends on how you have it set up, but I know when I mount .dmg's orcd's that is where the icon becomes visible. Worth a look. Otherwise, sometimes when I download things, by default they go to my home folder (the house) try there too.

I used to have a similar problem (which really
irritated the bejeezus out of me) when I started
using X. I currently run the latest update
(10.1.4) on an iBook 500.

My previous TCP/IP configuration was: access
through DHCP served from Windows NT
server. I could see the servers and access
them fine under the chooser in Classic, but
never connect to them under X. I've searched
the Microsoft KnowledgeBase on this but
didn't find a direct answer (it probably has
something to do with the DHCP server's
configuration). Out of frustration, I decided to
install a Linux router two weeks ago (running
BBIagent). Giving my iBook a fixed internal
address and using the Linux router as the
gateway, I can now connect to allWinNT and
Win2K severs running the mac file services.

It's probably not the best answer for this
problem, but it's the fix that worked for me.

The original problem has probably been long solved, but when I first ran into this i found the simplest solution to be DAVE from Thursby software. It costs $130 and it works. Macs can see PC shares, NT shares et al and they can see the Mac should the Mac choose to be seen.
