    Question Windows Server cannot discover Mac Mini
    I am having difficulty allowing my Windows Server 2008 R2 to discover my Mac Mini. I can see the server from my Mac but not vice versa. I have tried configuring WINS on the mac with no luck.

    I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise running as a workgroup.
    It is configured for Home Network Mode with discovering enabled.
    The Workgroup name is Workgroup.

    On the Mac side I have a Mac Mini running OS X 10.7
    I have File sharing enabled and it is configured for SMB
    I have tried going to the wins section of the mac from my Wifi connection and tried the following configuration:

    Net Bios Name: PRODUCTION-MAC-MINI
    Workgroup: WORKGROUP
    Wins Servers: (My Routers IP address)

    With no luck

    Am I missing something here?

    Any suggestions?
