Good morning to all. I'm new to Mac and am having a difficult time connecting to my server. I'm using a MacBook Pro with OS 10.6.8 and am trying to connect to a Windows Small Business Server 2011. I'm able to see a Readyshare drive that is connected to our router, but I can't see the server anywhere. I'm not even sure that I'm looking in the right spot. I know this is vague, but I'm really new to Mac. Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks a million.

If you are trying to go to a share on the server you can use the following:

smb://SERVER NAME OR IP/SHARE NAME

You can find this in the Finder menu > Go > Connect to server

2.4GHz 13" rMBP 256gb | 2.5GHz Mac Mini w/ FusionDrive | Mac Pro 3,1 2x 2.8GHz | Dual 2.0GHz PowerMac G5 | 24" ACD | 64GB Verizon iPhone 6 | iPad 32GB Verizon LTE | iPad mini 16GB | Gen 7 Nano | TV1 | TV3
