Any experience with accessing CIFS shares from OSX?

edited July 2011 in advice
I'm trying to work out why accessing SMB/CIFS shares from OSX leads to only half of the shares being visible. There is probably analysis to do on the server side, but anyone dealt with this before?

TIA

    if you can only see certain shares, you need to check permissions on the server to see if folders/drive are accessible to you first

    i have pretty ropey experience of this type of thing on the work network.

    ...have you checked the workgroup names of the devices? Making them all the same workgroup seems to make life easier (in a small network). I know the lack of the latter has caused log-in problems for me in the past.

    for now its working well enough using DAVE. its like being back in 1999 using that though - i'm convinced the it guys could try harder on the server but they have declared the issue 'fixed'
