Can Files be transferred on a PC to a MAC server after an update?

I recently updated our MAC server to Snow Leopard Server 10.6.8.  A co-worker who used to be able to transfer files from his PC to the macserver now cannot because he cannot see it.

I've never seen the mac server even visable to the PC before the update.  Am I going bonkers or did I miss something in the update?

Mac OS Server provides a sharing command. You can create, delete To create a share you can use a command like:
sharing -a <PATH> -A <NAME>

So a folder like

 /share/public

and you want to create a share point called public

.  You can use the following command:

sharing -a  /share/public  -A public

Then just view the share by host-name

you can use the Mac server IP address in windows Run command //192.168.*.*/sharename

it will ask for credentials if its protected and it should then let user login.

How and where would I type the shareing command?  I tried running it via the IP Address and it's not recognizing it at all.

Open your Applications folder, then open the Utilities folder. Open the Terminal application. From there you can execute the commands.

You need to create the share as I described above before you can access it via UNC path on windows IE \\192.168.0.0\ShareName
