Sharing from Mac mini to Mac Pro - need some help...

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
I have an external drive (USB) connected to my Mac Pro. The Mac mini is in another room set up on the network. And Alias of the USB external Drive is in my Shared Folder and the Mac Mini sees it. I initially had to do "CMND+K" and enter in the Mac Pro's IP. It connected fine, and I can access the files. But, when I sleep the mini, and then wake it up later, I have to go through the "CMND+K" routine again and relogin to the Pro. I have tried adding this login routine to be auto, but it doesn't seem to be working. I get an error couldn't mount the drive when the mini wakes up. Maybe I did it wrong? Thanks
