Thread: Connecting to Windows 2000

    Connecting to Windows 2000

    I am totally new to's the reason, why I am not shure, where to post my question. Since I can post anything in this section here, I post here:

    I have connected a Mac (OSX) and a Windows 2000 PC to a LAN-Switch, for sharing files on both computers. I can easily do the job by accessing the Mac from the Windows PC. But by connecting from the Mac to the PC from the Finder "connect to Server", I get the error 36 (problems during read / write). I have configured fixed IP-Adresses within the same sub-net, and the workgroup is also the same one. There is no firewall installed on the Windows PC.
    Why can I just connect from the Windows PC, but not from the Mac-Device?

    Thanks for your hint.

    Closer than you think.
    Your Mac's Specs
    Performa 6116 2GBSCSI 8MB OS 7.5.3
    Is the W2K PC service Pack 4? Is the W2K PC sharing anything? There are no default shares on W2K, only admin shares like C$.





    when asked for credentials use pcname\pcusername and password

    *note: it might be pcname/pcusername and password
