    Accessing NAS via Hostname does not work

    In my Network (2 Apples, 1 Windows, 2 NAS w/ Samba) I am having troubles accessing the two NAS by name in the "Network" Folder in finder.

    The names of the two NAS are displayed, when I click on "Network" in finder, but as soon as I click on the alias, Finder tells me, that the alias is not found.

    Information for the alias says, that Finder tries to mount the NAS using NFS, but tthe NAS only support samba. Where and how can I change that
