Can I connect to Samba using a Mac?
Yes you can! To connect to Samba on your Mac, be sure you’re not clicked on any applications (so it should say Finder next to the Apple menu). Then go to “Go” menu and select the option “Connect to Server.” In the “Address,” type in smb://www.servername/username and hit “connect.” For example, if my user name is “test,” I would type in smb://www.sscnet.ucla.edu/test. A window should pop up, the Domain is SSC. Be sure Samba is installed and an account and password has been created for you (double check with your Unix/Linux admin). Samba runs a bit slow sometimes (this all depends on your connection speed and if you’re plugged directly into your internet or if you’re working off a wireless network). But you should have access to the folder as if you were working on a PC.
