How do I access a shared folder on my ReadyNAS OS 6 storage system by using a network-attached OS X device?

You can access shared folders on your ReadyNAS system using a network-attached OS X device.

To access a shared folder using a network-attached OS X device:

1. Ensure that the AFP or SMB file-sharing protocol is enabled on your ReadyNAS system.

2. In Finder, select Go > Connect to Server.

The Connect to Server dialog box displays.

3. Connect to your ReadyNAS system as follows:

  • If you are using the AFP file-sharing protocol, enter the following command in the Server Address field:

    afp://
  • If you are using the SMB file-sharing protocol, enter the following command in the Server Address field:

    smb://

In both cases, is the name that you assigned to your ReadyNAS system or the default host name if you did not change it.

Note: If you cannot access the ReadyNAS using its host name, try entering afp:// or smb:// instead. is the IP address of the ReadyNAS.

4. Click the Connect button.

You are prompted to log in to your ReadyNAS system.

5. Enter a user ID and password.

You can log in with administrator or user credentials. If you log in as a user, your access is limited by the settings configured by the ReadyNAS system administrator.

You are prompted to select a volume. Mac OS X calls your ReadyNAS shared folders volumes.

6. Select the volume or volumes (shared folder or folders) you want to access and click the OK button.

Finder displays the volume contents.
