I have a probelem in Windows 7. I just want to share folders on my Mac and I cannot see these folders. I work on a normal PC with Windows 7.

Thank you I solved it

Goto Start Menu Search for: Local Hit Enter Select Local Security Policy Goto Local Policies> Security Options Double Click on Network security: LAN Manager Authentication Change level to: Send LM # LTLM Responses


Goto Network security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP De-select Require 128-bit encryption Hit OK

I found this somewhere else on the web so can't take the credit, but it works for me and I can see my whole network, macs, windows and shared folders from either, all on windows 7 now.

I have both of these settings in my corp laptop (IT locks down any such changes, but it is within our policy). What's next? I cannot get the two laptops to see each other on the WiFi LAN. – mobibob May 23 '13 at 15:06
