Mac will not connect to Windows Small Business Server
Posted on 2007-10-06
I have a SBS with several XP PC's connected and all works fine. Just bought a Mac with tiger 10.4.10 OS, network works fine and I can access data on the shares on the PC's but alas not on the server, when I try and connect to the server it asks for a login name and password as part of the SMB/CIFS File System Authentication process, when I enter name and password (I know these are correct as I log on using these credentials from the PC's.) it says 'The alias "server name" could not be opened, because the original item could not be found'
Being my first encounter with Mac I am struggling here, any answers please.
