Can connect to server with AdmitMac, but not without
Posted on 2004-10-01
OK, so I have read quite a bit of responses to similar questions, but nothing has worked yet. I am running 10.3.5 on my iBook G3. Our network is running XP and I would like to connect. I installed AdmitMac and things were going fine. Now, however, I would prefer to not have to use an unnecessary program (I'm told it's unnecessary). When I type in "smb://tasok;miked@mainserver/share" I get the Authentication window, type in my password, and then get the message, "Could not connect to the server because the name or password is not correct." The user name and password are the same that I used when using AdmitMac. Furthermore, the username is also the name of my computer and my password is also my password for my computer. What should I tweak? It is theoretically possible, right?
