    SSH worked without any problems, using a wired network connection I managed to backup the Downloads and Desktop folders on the Mac to the server fairly quickly which is impressive considering the amount of time its taken to get it working !

    I'm now uncommenting folders from the exclude list one by one and performing an rsync each time.
    That's good news.

    So it seems samba was the problem ?

    From the sounds of it most of you are using SSH with rsync, so I may as well stick with SSH and forget about samba ?

    Im just curious now as to why samba didnt work ?

    Is samba not very good, is that the reason why the Mac doesnt always connect to the server without having to use the "Go->Connect to server..." method ?

    Possibly. It's very odd through. Do you have anything in the samba logs in /var/logs?

    I haven't had much experience with macs, so I can't tell you if that behavior is expected or not (but I would lean toward not).

    Same here. SSH for everything, zero need or use for anything else.
