Macs on Microsoft Networks

Read this article.

If you work in network support for Windows, sooner or later it’s bound to happen. You’ll be sitting quietly at your desk, and someone will walk up with a long list of questions about their Apple Macintosh computer. How do we connect it to the existing network? How will users access file shares, print, browse the Internet, and use e-mail? What do you do? You don’t know anything about a Mac beyond plugging it into the wall. In a perfect world, you could plug in any device and go to work. Unfortunately, it’s a little more involved than that. It isn’t as hard as it sounds, though, nor is it as difficult as it used to be. Just remember that there is more than one way to peel an Apple!

This article includes information on:
