Anyone use DAVE?

Being the antiestablishmentarian that I am, I'm waging my own personal war against the machine(s) at work and using my MacBook in a nearly pure windows environment.

So anyways, mostly everything works fine except my machine isn't a real member of the windows domain, and printing was next to impossible since I could never "see" the fancy Toshiba Printer/Copier/Scanner/Fax/Espresso Maker/Swiss Army Knife units we have on the network.

So I decided to try out DAVE. It allows me to connect my Mac to the Windows domain and I can now see and print to the network printers.

So my question is, when I come home I can't see the NAS on my home network without running the DAVE setup utility to essentially tell it I'm not on the work domain anymore. Anyone know how I can easily switch between the 2 networks without doing the setup thing?

It's a 14-day trial that I'm willing to pay the $119 for if it turns out to be useful. So far it is, but the setup thing is a pain.

Anyone know of anything (nearly)free that does the same thing?

You might need to make adjustments in Utilities -> Directory Access .. hilight the SMB/CIFS under the services tab and press "Configure" ... this should allow you to join your home workgroup again.

AFAIK this is also picked up when you setup network locations .. so you might get away with changing these setting and setting up a location for both work and home. In fact you might even be able to join the work network (depending on the setup) without requiring Dave to do this... not sure if this supports a full domain logon or just workgroup stuff . . . I've always done my windows domain hookups through Xserves Open Directory / Active Directory services

I also just noticed that in 10.4.x you can use directory servies in that same utility as well .. I bet that will solve all your woes without resorting to Dave (maybe -- if your work is doing a full AD setup)

Hey thanks mguertin - I'm going to give that a try tomorrow.

BTW, is that you playing the bass? I haven't played in 20 years - looking to get a cheap bass again and get back into it.

Cheers,
Russ
