Cannot access network shares with iMac
Posted on 2007-07-22
I have a workgroup network of several WinXP, Server 2003 and Vista computers. My iMac can now no longer access shares on this network (initially it had no problems). The workgroup shows up, and all of the computers are properly listed, but when I try to Connect to one of the shares (which are all correctly shown on the dropdown list) I get the message: "The alias "<computer name>" could not be opened, because the original item cannot be found." Choices are <Delete alias>, <Fix alias...> and <OK>. When I select Fix, <Network> is grayed out and cannot be selected.
I have a nearly new iMac with 2GB RAM, OS X Tiger. No other Macs on the network.
