Hey there gang!

I'm pulling my hair out today trying to get this set up. I have file-sharing enabled on my PC running Vista 64. The Mac mini with Leopard has file sharing turned on with the right user account, as well as SMB. Both computers are using Workgroup as the network name. I can see the Mac mini (drop box and printer) on Vista, but nothing else. That being said, I can't even access those folders. I see nothing on in the Mac Finder for the PC. However, I can see my son’s laptop that is running Windows XP.

I saw some tips via Google how to set this up, but they require registry changes. They are also dated from last year. I have a hard time believing this can't be set up without making modifications to the registry.

Any help would be most appreciated!


Thanks

This may have nothing to do with it, but have you shared any folders on either or both of your machines?

I sort of remember having to make this modification in Vista on my wife's laptop. It's been a while though.

1. Go to the Control Panel
3. Open Administrative Tools
4. Local Security Policy -> Local Policies -> Security Options
6. Find "Network security: LAN Manager authentication level"
7. Change that to "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated" from the default.

As for adding more shared folders. You can do that right in System Preferences > Sharing > File Sharing. Just hit the first plus sign and add what you want.
