Apple OS X connection to Buffalo TeraStation Shared folder - permissions question
Posted on 2013-06-10
We have a Buffalo TeraStation NAS box for our small office. I setup the Shared folder a year ago with NO restrictions on the Share folder, therefore the users to not have to login and and authenticate to the Buffalo. All windows users can map a drive without problems.
This is fine for our situation ( NO sensitive files are kept on the Shared folder) except now we added a MACBOOK AIR running OS X.
Over the weekend I SUCCESFULLY setup the MACBOOK to access the Share by adding "apple" support to the Share inside the Buffalo AND adding a USER name and password on the Share as the MACBOOK finder command required it ( SEE BELOW)
The MAC BOOK succesfully connects and then prompts for a user name on the Buffalo and I could then successfully access files.
HOWEVER this morning I discovered that ALL the LAN users mapped drives failed and I would have to drive to the office., setup users and remap and authenticate each person.
IS THERE SOME "SWITCH" ON THE OS X COMMAND LINE THAT I CAN ADD THAT WILL ALLOW A MAC USERS TO ACCESS AS EVERYONE ?
To repeat....... I successfully used the exact same line in "Finder then Cmd+K ) without the "everyone" when I was using permissions and users on the Buffalo)
I have looked on the apple forums but have not yet found a solution.
Thanks for taking the time to look at this....
