Have I mentioned how much I don’t like working with Macs?
I have some friends who like them, so I won’t go as far as some Mac fanboys to claim that Macs suck and everyone is better off with an XP computer (but that is pretty much how I feel).
I bought a Mac for my wife a year ago, because at school there are still people emailing around clarisworks files, and from time to time we want to do something that would require accessing a shared folder on the network.
Problem is: it never works.
“The alias ServerName could not be opened because the original item cannot be found”
Searching google turned up 101 different ways to connect to a network share, and they all failed in different ways.
Last nigiht I found myself trying to get it to work once again, but this time I happened across a solution.
After hours of wasting my time, I finally found the solution here.
Windows 2003 Servers encrypt their communications, Macs can’t deal with this. Problem solved.
