I have a linux box running ubuntu server 10.10.

I want to make a mapped drive in osx pointing to a folder in the linux machine.

From my browser, I can see the linux machine (running apache)
I can ping it in the network utility ...

The machine's def see each other.

If I go to "Connect to Server" in finder - I can't find the server ...

What do I need to do ?

I think you need to set up some sort of file sharing on your Ubuntu server.

If you want to use AFP try look at this:

Kavik379, I haven't been back to that office to play with the server - I will post what I find when I'm back there. Sorry to not have been able to test it sooner.

Really wasn't concerned with mDNS too much. Just wanted an easier option to log into my local webserver instead of ftp'ing everytime i make updates/test development projects.

Thanks !
