Can someone provide some example or solution to the following scenario:

Windows 2003 Terminal Server --------------------------------------->map drive--------------------->MAC server share.

I need to somehow map a drive from a Windows Terminal Server to a Macintosh Server share.  How can this be accomplished?

Thanks in advance.

    What version of MAC OS is hosting the share?  Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server support SMB sharing via Samba.

    I have to ask the client.  I think Mac OS X Server.  Can you please send me a link or something to how to setup the samba share on the Mac OS x Server?

    This is an existing share.  Can I just map a drive from the Windows server?  Is it that easy?

    You can just right click on the My Computer either on your Desktop or Your Windows Explorer and Select Map Network Drive

    Choose ANy Drive or accept the Default and key in the Folder box

    Where ip address is your Mac Server IP address...
    Enter the folder that is being shared out from the MacServer

    or Alternatively you Can click Browse, and look for the MacServer (SMB name) on the Entire Network >Microsoft Windows Networks >
    Depending if you set any domain or workgroup name, you should see the macserver name.
