Mac OS 10.6.4 having shared folder access issues on SBS 2003

We have a server running SBS 2003. We have 3 Macs in the office. Two of them do just fine, but the newest and best one has a very slow connection to shared folder areas and only has read privileges when it does connect. It's a MacBook Pro running OS 10.6.4. It's on a wired connection to the network. It connects to the server using the smb:// protocol.

The user is already a member of the Administrators group, so he should have complete access. On top of that, I have gone into the specific shared folder he's trying to access and added his username for complete access.

I don't know where else to go from here.

Have you tryed allowing Everyone access for a test? just to see if its a permissions issue or a Mac thing? (do for both NTFS and share)

We have a small network, so it's actually already set up to allow Everyone full control.

ok, so we know its not that then.. it seems the latest OS X has some SMB sharing problems, have you read thru this page: http://www.macwindows.com/snowleopard-filesharing.html ?

Maybe a good idea instead of using everyone, use Authenticated users just to add a bit of security for file shares etc :)

Are all of your computers running the same version of the Macintosh OS?

I would start by going through and checking everything in the network system preferences to ensure all of your network settings are exactly the same and it's nothing on this side.

Have you tried connecting from one of the other computers with the same username?

That article did the trick. Thanks for the link! Adding :139 to the smb:// connection protocol fixed the issue.

smb://servername:139
