SMB 10.1.5 to XP Pro
Authored by: Fritz on Nov 09, '02 01:09:30PM

OK, this is making me yell at my machines.

I have an XP Pro box I use at work that belongs to a network domain.
When I have it at home on my own little net that is NOT connected to the Corporate Domain, eg... I log in locally to the box with admin privledges, disable the proxy on my browser and it works fine. It has a share called MacShare, with everyone, full control at the share level.

Using the mac connect to server- I go smb://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/MacShare
and am prompted for

WorkGroup/Domain -- ( I have left this empty, tried my corporate domain, machine name)
User name --- that takes my simple mac id and adds it capitalized eg, FRITZ
Password --

WTF am I doing wrong here? I have tried all the combinations of SMB://username:password/ip address/MacShare

Please help! this really is frustrating the hell out of me.....
