    Yet another Windows XP to Mac thread
    I have searched all of the threads here and nothing has helped. I setup a network on my pc and the pc found my mac. The problems im having are that the PC will not connect to the mac and my mac wont find the pc. I have no idea what to do, some help would be great.

    Thanks, but that didnt help. I can see that my powebook is on the network when im on my pc, but I cant get access to it. Now when I get on my powerbook and look in the network there is a folder that is named the same as my network but there is nothing inside of it when I open it.

    ok I took a screen shot of my network places on my pc (first picture), I can see the powerbook perfectly fine, but when I go to click on it it gives me an error (second picture):





    Valued-a4de119d is the name of my computer, the workgroup name is HOME1, and UPSTAIRS is the description of my computer. Usually after 10-15 minutes a server icon shows up in the HOME1 folder under network on my powerbook, but when I try to open it it says something about cannot be found and fix alias. Im totally lost, I have absolutely no idea what to do.

    OK what you need to do is this:

    Open up system preferences on your MAC
    Tick Windows Sharing and click start
    Go to your PC
    Open your microsoft windows network in your explorer
    You should see Mshome ( pending on how you have set you network up )
    And Workgroup
    Click on Workgroup
    Enter the username and password of your mac account you are currently logged in on.
    In your workgroup you should see your MAC
    If you open your username profile directory then you will see what you see in your finder!
