How to Find Windows Home Server on MacBook Pro


Windows Home Server is a product by Microsoft that will back up PC files automatically and allow all the PCs in your home or office to share files. The MacBook Pro is the high-end notebook from Apple. While Macs can’t back up their OS on the Windows Home Server, they can access it and share files with PCs through it. If you have Macs and PCs in your home or office, you can find Windows Home Server on a MacBook Pro quite easily.

  • Open "System Preferences" in the Apple menu. Go to "Sharing."

  • Check "File Sharing" in the list of options.

  • Open the Finder's "Go" menu. Click on "Connect to Server."

  • Input the Windows Home Server IP address (see Tips) and press "Connect."

  • Enter the name and password of your Windows Home Server into the proper fields. Press "Connect."

  • Open "Network" in the Finder’s "Go" menu. Windows Home Server will show up as an option to connect with. You can now find Windows Home Server with a MacBook Pro.

Tips & Warnings

  • Find the Windows Home Server IP address on your PC in "Settings," "Remote Access," "Details."
  • You must select "Windows Sharing" from the "Sharing" menu in System Preferences in order for Windows to access any MacBook Pro files.
