As far as I am aware, Macs don't actually "login" as such they just use the file shares. You need to load appletalk on the server, and then create an apple share on the server. The macs can only access this apple share.

However with Jaguar you can use windows file sharing. Just turn it on, on the mac, then create a username and password on the NT box that match what the mac is logged in as.

Alternatively if you just want to swap files, you can use ftp.

I assume your tCP/ip is working and you can ping the server from the apple?

I assume it's easier and also better to use tcp/ip on the Mac. No bradcast overhead and so ever. Install File services for Mac on the NT server and the Chooser will show the volume
