Hi All,
I have bit of issue were by I am unable to browse my share on my NAS box from my Windows server 2008.

Windows server 2008 standard SP2 64bit (GC)
Iomega NAS box (I don’t have model handy)

I can access the shares on the NAS box from Windows server 2003 Standard 32bit (DC) by type in run \\share\ but it doesn’t work on my 2008 box!

Do I need to install/add any component/software/roles/features on my 2008 box to enable it to see my NAS box please?

I have theory, I think the NAS box is running on UNIX or Linux and my new windows server 2008 can’t talk to it but I could be wrong :)
