How to connect from windows 7 to windows 2008 server

I have installed a new server with windows 2008 foundation server, the problem I got is, when I try to connect to the shared folder from my computer with windows 7, I got an error, that says it is not possible to connect to the ip the user may not has right to access.
I am sure that I write the right password, the confirm is, when I try to do the same think from another computer with mac os x it connects without anyproblem.
May it is a password authentication protocolo problem?
