Make Macs appear in Windows' Network Neighborhood
Authored by: kerouassady on Oct 21, '03 10:41:31PM

Yeah, Directory Access thing worked fine for me. The tricky thing I had was setting up the Samba shares so I could use guest access with Read-Only priviledges like I do on the Mac share side. SharePoints does this now no problem but originally it didn't and it took awhile for me to make the mental connect between share priviledges and directory priviledges as Windows does and, of course, item priviledges like UNIX does.

I don't understand how sending passwords in plain text would make a machien identify other machines on the network but, then again, there are a lot of things about Windows and especially Windows networking that doesn't make any sense.
