I have a lot of IMACs and PowerMacs hooked onto my server..using DHCP..Is there any way to see these machines when I look at the Network Neighborhood??

RE: Damned Apples


If they are shared as servers then you can map drives from your Windows machine to the Macs. But nothing via Network Neighbourhood.

RE: Damned Apples

Try looking into the program Dave to load on the Macs..
It should let them show up in Network Neighborhood.

RE: Damned Apples

Network Neighborhood is generated through NetBIOS. You would need a NetBIOS emulator for the Mac. Sounds like that's what the mentioned "Dave" program is.


RE: Damned Apples

PCMACLan installs the Appletalk protocol stack. I've not used it for a server but many of my Workstations use this in order to see Mac's.

RE: Damned Apples

MacLan connect allows a PC to access a Mac via the apple protocol stack and it appears as a workgroup/domain. New versions of the AppleShare IP (i.e. versions 6 onwards) allow direct SMB access from a PC anyway.

If you want to put a Mac onto network neighbourhood you do need a copy of Dave.
