    Try this:

    http://www.ifelix.co.uk/tech/3001.html

    It worked for me, once, and its worked for a few other people. It says its for networking os 10.3 but it works on Tiger just fine.

    Another vote for that site. Worked for me without a hitch.

    I follow the guide but when connecting to the server of the PC I get an error saying the bame or password is not correct.

    How can I get this working?

    Both computrs have the same name (shortcut) and same password.

    Christm im sure you can connect them both, but I dont know because I havent tried it. That tutorial doesnt take to long so I say go for it, you have nothing to lose.

    Beemer when I connected to my pc, when it asked for the username and password I just hit enter, I didnt type anything. So you might try that, if it doesnt work then I dont know what to do.

    It never asks for a password or username. When I click on Go then ttype in smb://192.168.0.8 (with my ip of course) it says connecting then something about username and password do not match. I dont get a window to enter in the stuff.

    Oh, im not sure what to do then, ive only gotten this tutorial to work once. I would try somethings and see if I can help, but my pc is down and out right now. Hopefully somebody else will see this and might be able to think of something to do. Sorry I cant be of much help.

    The only problems I've had is printing off my MBP on a printer attached to a PC. Tried countless times and have not had any luck.
