    Pc, mac and, ethernet
    Hi all, i am new in this forum, so i hope u can help me.

    I have a pc and mac that share the internet conection via ethernet and a hub, my mac detects the pc name in the network, but it cant open the connection, there is a message and this is: " The alias "PCHOME" could not be opened, because the original item cannot be found."

    The ip for the pc is 10.0.0.5 and for the mac is 10.0.0.4.

    well i hope u can understand my problem.

    Also make sure that on your PC you are sharing the C: drive or at least whatever folders you are trying to access

    Specs:
    MacBook
    In the Finder, hit Command + K

    Type the network address for the computer in the Server Address text box using this format:

    smb://IPaddress/sharename

    Follow the onscreen instructions to type the workgroup name and a user name and password, and choose the shared folder you want to access.

    I always tried the smb://ipaddress and it still does not work...maybe my computer really is having issues, but I can connect to it via vnc I just can not mount it on the desktop... oh well, if thats how you do it then I guess I will not be able to mount my hard drive of my windows machine (my crappy one, my good one works)

    Just make sure that the Workgroup name is the same for all machines, and that you set your C: drive for sharing. If that is the case, you really shouldn't have a problem mounting the Windows machine on the Mac.
