    Accessing files on a Windows network
    How do I access ComputerB on NetworkA?

    For example on Windows \\NetworkA\ComputerB works on a Windows machine - what's the OS X equivalent?

    Thanks.

    MacBook Pro | iMac(2.1 G5) | MacBook(2.16 C2D) | MacMini (1.67 CD) | iPhone 4 | iPad (3rd Gen)
    Assuming that you activated a folder to share(in Windows), you can can try the following.
    1) Go to Finder >Go > Connect to Server
    2) Type smb://<IP Address of the ComputerB> (eg. smb://192.168.1.56) and hit enter.
