    Connecting to Windows 2000
    Hi,

    I am totally new to www.mac-forums.com...that's the reason, why I am not shure, where to post my question. Since I can post anything in this section here, I post here:

    I have connected a Mac (OSX) and a Windows 2000 PC to a LAN-Switch, for sharing files on both computers. I can easily do the job by accessing the Mac from the Windows PC. But by connecting from the Mac to the PC from the Finder "connect to Server", I get the error 36 (problems during read / write). I have configured fixed IP-Adresses within the same sub-net, and the workgroup is also the same one. There is no firewall installed on the Windows PC.
    Why can I just connect from the Windows PC, but not from the Mac-Device?

    Thanks for your hint.

    regards
    MacPat

    Is the W2K PC service Pack 4? Is the W2K PC sharing anything? There are no default shares on W2K, only admin shares like C$.

    Try,..

    CMD+K

    enter,...

    smb://the.pcs.ip.address/c$

    when asked for credentials use pcname\pcusername and password

    *note: it might be pcname/pcusername and password
