Seeing a MAC Server in Windows Network

I recently updated our MAC Server to Snow Leopard 10.6.8.  Now I have a small group of users that have to transfer files to and from that network using their Windows machine through network sharing that can now no longer see it or gain access to it as they used to before I did the update.

Time Machine is possible but I do not have Airport to it and the server itself, a mini, doesn't have a DVD Drive to reinstall the OS with archive.

Did I severely muck something up here?

no not really.

I think it is to do with the authentication settings.

on yours windows machine, go to security policy and change the lan manager authentication level to the longest one you see there >>>> http://www.groupes.polymtl.ca/gchit/?page_id=238


the run command is secpol.msc    once you do that then try to login to the mac server and see if it lets you log in
