Browse the Network

April 16, 2007

I had a user with a brand-new MacPro who could not browse her local LAN. She had all other services, email, web, ftp, printing, etc. But when it came to using the Network icon to browse, all she got was a list showing Applications, Library and Users. This had been going on for weeks, and persisted through a reboot. Hmmm... I looked at the top-level of the HD in the terminal, and noticed that the date on the folder named Network was over a year old. So, I nuked it using the sudo rm command. After a reboot, all was fine again. Yay!
