File sharing between window and osx

Hello, I am trying to access files located on my windows box with my wireless mac (os x). They are both on the same router.

I have tried entering smb://(pc local ip) into finder and it can not seem to locate it. i also do not see anything when i browse the Network tab.

The pc does not see anything under the network neighborhood either.

However, if i enter the local ip address of the mac into ie on the pc, it brings up the mac (i have apache and php running on it) so i know they can see each other.

If you could offer some assistance in this matter, it would be great.
Thank you.

Check both your windows firewall and Mac OS X firewall setting.  Do you allow for windows sharing in your firewalls?
