File sharing without installing SAMBA
Authored by: pfurbacher on Jun 12, '02 03:30:29PM

Well, to answer my own post, it appears that there are
two things one should avoid in order to get the Command-K
"Connect to server..." to work:

1. Avoid characters such as hyphens in the Windows computer's name.
(Silly me.)

2. IP addresses, as in "smb://172.16.1.1/<share_name>"
simply do not seem to work. (Someone else has pointed
this out in another OS X Hints thread.)

Can't wait for Jaguar's "Rendevous" (ZeroConf), though.
