I can't access my file server from my iMac (intel)...I keep getting an error that the link is broken. How do I fix that?

  1. I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 on a PC and I've installed samba, using it as my file server. User's don't need a password and username to connect.
  2. I can connect from another PC on the same network to the fileserver with no problem.
  3. I used to be able to connect to the fileserver from the mac but not now
QUOTE Thanks

I found the solution. On the Samba Server I had password encrypt = no when it should have been yes.

I'm no techie I just work with PCs
