I used this question: https://superuser.com/questions/316745/how-to-access-a-cd-dvd-drive-over-the-network to install nbd-server on my linux machine and share the CD drive.

But installing nbd-client on my Mac doesn't appear to be possible. Can't find it in homebrew.

How can I access the CD in that drive from my Mac?

  • I know your question says installing nbd-client on my Mac doesn't appear to be possible, but can you edit it to provide additional details on what you've actually tried and with what results? – Monomeeth Nov 20 '17 at 23:21
  • I tried to install with homebrew, like I said. Apt-get isn't on mac, so that's not an option. I can't find any instructions for installing it on a mac on the web. – jcollum Nov 20 '17 at 23:45
  • Chepe I don't get what you mean by that... the CD drive is on a linux machine – jcollum Nov 21 '17 at 3:15
  • @jcollum do you want to share drive from Linux to macOS? – Chepe Questn Nov 23 '17 at 2:37
  • According to your post: you Want to install nbd-client in macOS to get access to your CD Drive, I will use Samba on Linux Side apple.stackexchange.com/questions/273743/… to get access from macOS to any Folder on Linux side – Chepe Questn Nov 23 '17 at 2:47
