Macintosh client is blind

By scala ·
Macintosh client can not "see" any shared files on a Windows NT 4.0 files server with NTFS. Microsoft UAM volume is the only folder visible to the Macintosh client. Services for Macintosh have been installed on the NT server and the Microsoft UAM has been moved into the Macintosh client machine's system folder. Login authentication seems to be working properly and the client is able to print to all network printers. Does anyone know why the Macinotsh client can NOT "see" any of the shared folders on the NT file server???

Are you using Dave or Appleshare. If it is Dave, Use Appleshare. Add the appleshare to the Nt environment.

Unfortunately, NT does not automatically share your Windows volumes with Macintosh clients. You will need to go into File Manager (not explorer) and add your shares from there. First, select the folder you want to share. From the MacFile menu chooseCreate Volume. Enter the appropriate information and click OK. That should work for you.

The program "Dave" is usually pretty good about mounting Windows shared volumes. I used it just this past week to mount a shared volume on my NT 4.0 server, and it worked fine. I don't even have Mac services installed on the server.
