I have a Mac (10.6.4), and a Windows Home Server (software v.3). I am trying to access my main user files of the mac from the WHS. This is the folder in which are "documents" "downloads" "music" "movies" etc.
In "Sys Prefs"/Sharing/ I set "file sharing" tick box, and add the directory in question. My username is set to "Read & Write".
Why can I not access the share? When I attempt to do so I get the following message:
"\\Computer is not accessible. You might not have permission to user this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network parth was not found."
The thing is that with other network shares I am prompted for the username and password of the computer wher the shares are, but this doesn't happen with my mac. Why? Is there anywhere a place to reset the passwords or to force authentication?
I already had a look at the "Stored User Hames and Passwords" in the control panel, but haven't tried to use it (currently there are no user/pass info in it).
What can I do to access my mac share from the WHS?
