Default Alternatives to DAVE and ADmitMac foir DFS shares


DAVE and ADmitMac from thursby.com are nice pieces of software, but
they only support Intel based Macs with their beta software. Usually,
I jump on betas, but the user of this particular PowerBook needs
something more stable. Does anyone have an alternative way of
connecting to Windows DFS share from Max OS X (10.4.6)?
Thanks!

PowerBooks are PowerPC based, which means you can use the currently
shipping (non-beta) Dave and ADmitMac products. If your user has a
MacBook Pro then I know of no other options for connecting to DFS shares.

Hope this helps! bill

in article 1147876600.528774.309100@j73g2000cwa.googlegroups. com,


The current Thursby BETA program for DAVE 6.2 and ADmitMac 3.2 does support
both intel and PPC. The installers and software are all Universal Binary.

I have DFS shares on a W2003K server and Panther and Tiger Clients... I
connect by Command+k to:
smb://theservername/thesharename$

seems perfectly stable... note: macs do not understand the 'proper way'
of addressing a DFS share - ie //domainname/DFSsharename. Consequently,
not as fully implemented as you would wish but perfectly functional.
