I have a newly rebuilt windows 2003 server box which has been added to the domain. It's not a main server for our company but we have a small agency renting office space that would like a share setup on it temporarily to store work. I have created the share, created a local user via users and groups in computer management and can browse through and log into the share via a PC however when I try and access it via a mac I get a login prompt but an invalid username and password error. Any ideas?  I'm using SMB:// protocol on the mac to connect to the server.

Here are the protocols supported by SQL Server and I suggest use standard TCP/IP:

Shared memory
Named pipes
TCP/IP
VIA
