why do you need sharity?
Authored by: junehao on Oct 27, '01 01:11:50AM

Because you cannot just use smb://server, you have to indicate the share explicitely like smb://server/share. In my working environment we have 20+ Windows NT/2000 servers and each one has a whole bunch of shares. Without using Sharity I have to go to one of the Windows machine to check which resource I am going to connect because I can't remember all of them. Well of course that's not a problem for those who has only one Windows server and a few shares. :-)

Thank you. That is the single most useful thing I've read since installing Mac OSX.1. I've been trying to figure out how to do windows shares since then, and it turns out all I needed was the actual share name as well as the machine name.
