How to access a shared folder from a macOS® computer
In order to access a shared folder from a macOS® computer located on another machine or another device (its operating system doesn’t matter), you have to get the Finder’s “Go” menu and then “Connect to server”. In the opening window, you’ll have to indicate the name of the remote MyCrypNet access which you want to connect to, to be able to access its shares, starting by
smb://to define the access protocol (SMB protocol). (Reminder : “How to organize a 3 distant access points MyCrypNet network”). In this example, OFFICE-DESKTOP (according to the naming convention available here) is the name of the MyCrypNet access that shares the files. Authentication with a username (ALICE, according to the naming convention available here) and password (ALICE-PASSWORD) will be requested. Then finally the choice of the shared directory (SHARE-NAME) to access. This makes it possible to use the built-in file-sharing feature of MacOS®, without installing third-party software and preserving all the advantages of your MyCrypNet private network: security, speed and simplicity.
