I have a SMB/AFP network share that needs to be accessed via Windows and Mac computers. The AFP side works fine for the Mac OS X clients.
However, I can't get it to map on Windows. I've tried the following steps:
- Right click "Network," select "Map Network Drive"
- Enter the SMB server in the form
- Select "Connect using different credentials"
- Enter username and password
The window then shows "Attempting to connect" for several dozen seconds, then reverts back to asking for the username and password.
I have tried mapping two different SMB shares in this manner, one running on some version of Windows Server (our university provides this) and another running on Mac OS 10.8 server (the SMB/AFP server) with no success. I have tried on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 (various native and virtualized copies) with no success.
I have already changed the security policy to guest only authentication, which had no effect.
