Unlike the existing Apple Samba system, Share Menu shows each share using full length names, and is not limited to fourteen characters. This removes the need to have special Mac share names that can be found using the Finder connect to server menu option. When you are not connected to the network or the network is offline, the menu has the ability to show that the connection has failed, and will update if the network comes back online, saving the need to keep checking. Features include:
- Connects a Mac running OS X to a Windows computer,
- Share Menu now fully supports Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4).
- Authentication window is now easier to understand.
