If you're talking about sharing files between a Vista PC and a Mac, I too would be interested in knowing the answer. I've followed every guide I could get my hands on and I have yet to make it work. I've changed all sorts of settings on my Vista PC, but to no avail. If it weren't for Media Center, I would have switched back to XP simply because it shares far more easily with Macs than Vista seems to.

I have posted the changes to Vista that made it work here so many times. It's here somewhere. If it still does not work, something else is wrong. Worked here with Vista Ultimate and EVERY Mac in the house and that is a lot of Macs. I posted the steps with in a week or so in fact. I will try and find my last post on it.

Kash, if you followed one of my earlier posts on it and you can't get it to work, I don't know what to say. I have helped many and it worked for them. I no longer have Vista here so can not try it with Leopard. This was with Tiger and Panther, just to be clear in case it's different with 10.5.

Also before Vista I never once had an issue getting XP and OSX 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4 to network and file share computer to computer. Vista was a first.

I think all of the guides available use Tiger, so it could very well be possible that Leopard is the culprit.

That is very possible. I can't try it and don't want to spend $$$ on Vista at the moment. It was on a system here and that system is gone. Still looking for my message with what worked for me.

Found it. This always worked here but remember, with Tiger.

transfering files from pc to mac

I wish I had Vista around still to be sure all works. Will get it someday. Not a high priority for me as XP does whatever I need done in Windows. I can understand your usage as a Media Center as I hear it's way better in Vista than XP.

What happens when you try? Have you tried from both OSX and Vista? What happens exactly? Do you have a Mac with Tiger still?

Interestingly, I just tried it out again and turns out I can connect to my Mac from Vista, but I can't connect the other way around, it keeps giving me the "Connection Failed" or "You do not have permission to access this server" error messages.

I found Leopard to play extremely well in our office's MS-SBS environment. Sharing seamlessly back and forth with Vista workstations.


Here is what I did to make it work. There are two steps here. I'm not sure which one actually does the trick. So try the Mac step first.

In the Network Preferences pane, select your active connection and click Advanced. Click the WINS tab and fill out the information.

Choose a unique NetBIOS Name, join the same Workgroup, and use the same WINS Server your PCs are using. Click OK, then Apply.
This takes a little while to actually happen. You might as well reboot to make it official. I believe the WINS cache on PCs refreshes every 5 (or 15) minutes. So be patient for you Mac to show up in Explorer.

It still may not, until you do the PC step...

I have to find the instructions for the PC step Don't turn that dial!

Found it...

Case 1, your server is nothing more than a regular file server. In this case open up regedit (Start > Run > "regedit" {return}), and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ LanManServer \ Parameter \ RequireSecuritySignature, and set it's value to "0".

Case 2, your server is also a Domain Controller. In which case you need to open the DC's Security Policy (Administrative Tools > Domain Controller Security Policy). Navigate to Local Policies > Security Options, and disable "Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always)" & "Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (if client agrees)". Reboot your sever, and you should be good to go.

Leopard and vista sharing is not so difficult. From vista to access leopard it's the same old smb process that still works. And from vista it's just the normal sharing folder and then accessing it as \\vista-ipaddr\share name.

I have done it myself so many times..... pretty simple.

I figured it out!! I cannot believe it was so simple. All I had to do was go into the Networking preferences and disable password required to access shared files/folders. Works like a charm now!!

As you can tell, I am quite excited
