Can't connect to Win 98 client
Authored by: Another osX User on Oct 03, '01 02:11:52AM

FWIW, I couldn't connect to my girlfriend's Win2K machine using the IP.

Try connecting using smb://<Computer Name>/<Share Name>

I tried to connect via the computer name, just for kicks, it let me right in. Didn't even require the Workgroup or password. Tried again with the IP, it didn't work. Don't know why, but only the computer name worked for me. But hey, it works great so no complaints.
