How to open password protected shared (samba) folders (MacOS)

If, in Finder, you’ll try to open shared folder (in my case, it is shared on windows machine) it just won’t open. To enter your credentials, open Finder, in menu select Go -> Connect to server. And in “Server Address” field enter “sbm://”(without quotes) and IP address or name of computer with shares. For example¬†


Then, press Browse or Connect and computer will ask you for a username and password. Just enter your credentials and Voila! You have just connected to password protected shared folder ;)
