To open Windows share on Mac OS X:

  • Open Finder
  • Go > Connect to Server
    Finder > Go > Connect to Server

  • Type smb://
    where your windows machine's IP address or DNS name.
    Finder > Connect to Server

The same method can be used to connect to Linux (Samba), NAS and other network devices serving files via SMB (Server Message Block) protocol. It is also known also CIFS (Common Internet File System).
