I can create new folders on my Windows XP machine, set them to "shared".
On my Mac, I pick Finder → Go → Connect to Server →
smb://192.168.1.4 → Connect → Name / Password.
It even shows me all the names of the newly created shared-folders on my PC, but when I try to actually connect to any of them I get
connection failed, there was an error connecting
Any idea on what would cause that? The fact that it successfully gets so far—to actually showing me my PC share-names—must mean I have 99% of this working correctly, i.e. the physical connection, the IP address, the user name, the password, etc.
Still, I can't seem to access the folders themselves.
I've tried this with my Windows XP firewall on/off, and Norton AntiVirus on/off. Same problem.
Everything did work fine, 4 months ago. Were there any odd OS X or Windows updates released recently? I always apply them all.
smbclient on the Mac does correctly find the XP machine, my XP user name, and accepts my XP password.
I get the following from that
Doing spnego session setup (blob length=16) server didn't supply a full spnego negprot Got challenge flags: ... Got NTLMSSP flags: ... Got NTLMSP flags: ... Domain=[XPMACHINE] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager] tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_INSUFF_SERVER_RESOURCES
I'm not sure why a standard XP box can't "supply a full spnego negprot". Whatever that means.
Using XP's RegEdit to change my IRPStackSize from 11... to 13, 15, 20, 22... still gives that "NT_STATUS_INSUFF_SERVER_RESOURCES" error on the Mac.
