Hey guys,

I'm running 10.5 on my Mac Book Pro. I have a PC running Windows XP Professional & Windows Vista in Dual Boot.

When i boot into XP, my MAC picks up the PC and I can see the shared folders and I'm able to connect to the printer that is shared on the PC.

When I boot into Windows Vista Ultimate, my MAC does not pick up the PC and I cant connect to the shared printer either. (Printer Sharing & File Sharing are enabled on Windows Vista)

Does anyone know a fix for this?

Thanks!

The problem obviously lies on the Windows end. Vista's networking is really confusing. I'm not sure what public network and private network does. That's why I downgraded to XP

As for printer sharing, why don't you connect your printer to the Mac and share it from there via bonjour?

Microsoft doesn't share. It steals from Apple. That's where Vista came from!

yea the networking is confusing in vista.

well the reason why I cant connect the printer to my Mac Book Pro is b/c when i take it to work, and if my mom wants to print something from the living room... there is no printer available...
