I have a Windows Server 2008 machine that is running as a regular workgroup. The reason is that it's only a file server for 5 Mac Leopard 10.5.4 computers. We figured that it would be best for it to remain a regular workgroup for compatibility reasons.
Anyway, we've always had saving and exporting issues when saving and exporting to files on the server, but recently we've not been able to see the contents of our mounted network drives at all.
The network drive mounts fine (Finder>>Go>>Connect To>>smb://server/share), but nothing shows up in the network drive. If you try to copy something to the network drive or create a folder, it will write it and then almost immediately disappear.
The firewall on the server is off. The firewall on the Macs are set to "Allow all incoming connections".
IPv6 is off on the Macs and on the server. The Macs are set to the correct workgroup in "Network".
Any ideas? I'm stumped here. It always worked, but all of a sudden we see nothing in our mounted network drives.
