For the life of me I can't find a solution to this.

Running off my personal PC I have a share drive. Every PC in the house connects to it perfectly. My MBP did once, and won't anymore. It had connectivity for all of about 5minutes then it dropped it.

I setup a new home server running off a HP Proliant. The PC's connect to it fine, its running Server 2008 R2.

The MBP connected to it fine, then dropped connection.

I can't figure out where to even start.



It is working, Im actually transferring backups from the PC's to the server now... But the MBP won't see it.

Running 10.7.2

Try SMB://ipaddress instead.

eg

smb://192.168.1.10

Or add the hostname of the home server to the host file on the Mac in /etc/hosts

No go on that.

My coworker sent me the following:

Lion removed Samba for a different implementation of SMB. It's bad so I hear. Maybe you can get it to mount as AFS or NFS instead of SMB. Or find a Samba install from MacPorts/Fink
