    Unhappy Networking Mac and Windows
    Hi to all. I have been experiencing problems trying to connect my imac to a windows based machine. I'm trying to connect my mac to the pc wirelessly. In the system preferences I have enabled DVD or CD Sharing, Screen Sharing, File Sharing, Printer Sharing, Remote Login and Bluetooth Sharing. When I connect to the wireless network I'm able to access the PC but it can't access my mac. The PC is in a workgroup with 4 more computers but I can't add my mac to the workgroup. Can someone help me?

    To change the workgroup to match your existing network go to System Preferences->Network->Advanced->WINS tab

    Make and use a copy of the Automatic settings then change the workgroup to match your existing setup.

    I'm not in front of my mac at the moment so this is all from memory. If this isn't helping post back and I'll get the exact details when I get back to my mac.
