Setting up small mac network with shared user names, some help please!
posted by multivalent to Computers & Internet (6 answers total)
I know this is probably fairly basic level stuff but here we go:
So we have just got 3 new macs at work which all connect via airport to a wireless broadband network. I've set them up so they all connect fine to the internet, and I understand that you can set up folders to be shared from individual user names (there will be 4 in total - 3 staff with admin privileges, and a guest user with a password but without admin privileges.)
What I don't understand is how to migrate these individual accounts across the network - sure I can set up the 4 accounts individually on the machines and give them the same passwords - but I'd like to set it up so whichever machine you log onto you get your desktop/programmes/documents and settings.
There is also a new time capsule which isn't set up - but maybe useful for this?
Any help or advice would be really appreciated - I can provide more technical info etc if required.
