    UNC Paths - Macs?

    On windows you can \\computername\c$

    Is there any way to do this to a mac? I'm trying to get a few files onto each of the macs.

    Thanks

    When your desktop is active (finder) click Go -> Connect To Server

    Use the following:

    smb://[DOMAIN];[USERNAME]:[PASSWORD]@[SERVER]/[SHARE]

    or you can use CIFS.

    If you are joined to a domain and kerberos is setup correctly it should auto authenticate. so by going to cifs:// or smb:// it will either ask for a user name and password or ask which share you wish to connect to with the username you are authenticated with.

    System prefs > sharing, can turn on 'SMB' for windows clients in the options.

    There is no default administrative share in mac os x, you have to enable sharing within system prefs
