    It sees the network but no folders. For example it sees the mshome folder but not the folders and files inside? Anyone have a clue as to why this is happening.

    you need to authenticate
    click the reauthenticate button a type in the username and password of the authorized user on the share

    i had this trouble with my server, but my macbook would never save the username and password on my keychain so i said fuckit and selected the authorization for everyone
