Connecting Chromebook and Mac

Hi,

I would like to be able to access the files on my Mac from my Chromebook whilst in the house. We have a Plusnet Hub One.  I've tried sorting this out but failed.

How do I set up accessing my Mac computer from my Chromebook, please? Many thanks,

John

Re: Connecting Chromebook and Mac

You need to install "Network File Share" from the chrome store and then you should be able to connect.

Thank you, but Network File Share for Chrome OS does not seem to be available any longer Sad

Later versions of ChromeOS have smb file sharing built in
