I have a mac mini that's serving files over the network (Through the "sharing" part of the preferences). All files have a size, and are accessable locally. but when I try to
cat them on the terminal off the network or copy them to my local HD I get empty files only .
The permissions are set to allow everyone to both read and write. It's set to operate using the SMB protocol, and I've been trying to access it by clicking the machine name under the "shared" title on the left pane of "Finder" and logging in.
The mac has the "Mac server" program installed, not sure if it's relevant.
