    LAN SPEED TEST on OSX version - troublshooting on folder choice

    Hi,
    I just buy the full version to make some tests in our lan (using Beta software Win and OSX).
    I tested all Win PC easely.
    But I didn't arrive on OSX PC as I con't access to the network folder test.
    I copy / paste the access path I used for Win test (\\192.168.0.202\Public\_test) but it didn't arrive.
    I already test to go there to be sure to have access, with success.
    I tried to use the bottom "..." to go manually to there but it wrote "\Volumes\Public\_test" which doens't looks like the good way (test is very speed like if it tests inside the computer and not on network).
    Can you help me to find where I'm wrong?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Coxbuell,

    Were you able to figure this out? Mac OSX accesses the file system differently than Windows. Your location of '\\192.168.0.202\Public\_test' will not work for Mac. It's best to use the '...' button and search for the folder that way. If you are able to get to the correct test folder via other methods on your Mac, then you should find your mounted shared drive or folder mounted on the left side of that search window. Just click on it, then click on the correct folder if needed, and then choose 'Select'. It should look more like '/Volumes/Public/_test'. As long as this folder is on another computer, it is testing through your network.

    -Pete
