Use Dave...http://www.Thursby.com/purchase/upgrades.htm...It works rather well (i use it myself) and is fairly easy to set up as long as your NT administrator can give you some information about the network.

Ah well as you might see the experts exchange code isnt smart enough to discern where a URL ends. It stuck the "...it" in after the URL It should be http://www.Thursby.com/purchase/upgrades.htm

In fact I could manage to configure the Mac as NT client without any external software. I don't understand why you need Dave to do so!

I'll quickly go through the documentation to find out what Dave is ment for.

Thanks for the attempt anyway!

Dave is for putting your mac on an NT network. Windows and mac use different protocols for transferring files. Hence you need a program to translate between the two. Dave will put a mac on a windows network and PCMacLAN will put a PC on a mac network. You only need one or the other.

I was trying to say that I could achieve this without Dave.

1. Added the Service for Macintosh to the NT server.

2. Created a shared folder in the primary partition of the NT server.

3. created a Mac volume inside the newly created folder.

4. Set access rights.

5. Open the Apple Share from the chooser.

6. Select the zone that the NT server lies in.

7. The shared folder with Mac volume appleares, open it and then you can share files normally.

Try this without Dave and let me know if it works for you.
