Hi

I have a 2003 server currently setup as a DC. Pretty much all the clients on the network are Mac's. All I want to do at the momennt is have the server act as a fileserver and possibly run it as a remote/VPN server at a later date. Currently I have added Apple talk to the network card and created a share on the server. When attempting to connect from the mac I am prompted for a Domain, username and pwd in the SMB/CIFS file system authentication box. I enter this info correctly but then get the error: The alias 'server name' could not be opened , because the original item cannot be found. Delete alias, Fix Alias, OK.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Nick
