how do we share files from Mac to Windows?
I am unable to access the filesystem on my Mac.
I can actually see the machine from my Windows Vista machine, but whenever I double click on the icon for it and type my password, it always takes it as an invalid login.
I have also tried directly accessing it with the IP address. I have done the following things to no avail:
- I have set both machines workgroups to be the same name.
- I have added the IP address of my machine and the router under WINS servers
- I have added a user account in Windows that is the same name as my user account on my Mac (OSX 10.5 Leopard).
I know I am not entering the wrong password because I am able to access my MacBook Pro using ssh, with my usual username, and I have no trouble logging in.
Tried doing this, but it doesn't work:
root# smbpasswd -a ted New SMB password: Retype new SMB password: Failed to modify entry for user ted. Failed to modify password entry for user ted.
