Authenticating to Windows 2000 and XP networks
Authored by: stevec on Sep 04, '03 01:24:53PM

After having problems connecting the OTHER way (Mac to Winders) and getting those -36 errors. I made a couple of changes, specifically adding a WINS server IP (Under Active directory thie actually IS one of these, ask your admin) and UNchecking other unneeded authentication methods in Directory Services. leaving only Appletalk and SMB active.

It also seems to help to connect using the IP address (IE SMB://, if the server name does not work. You could also try the FQDN (IE: SMB:// if the NetBIOS name does not work (IE SMB://SERVERNAME)
