occasional smb connection issues at studio

Occasionally, the Linux smb share becomes inaccessible, not seen in the list of shares, to some of the Mac users in the Studio.

Solution: When not able to save to the shared folder, do the following:

Open Finder.
Choose Go Menu, Connect to Server.
Type smb://
in the server address box. 

Click connect. When it asks to connect as what user, choose the Guest option. Then you will be able to open the shared folders on that machine.
