10.5: Permissions and SMB shares in Leopard
Authored by: msephton on May 13, '08 05:10:04AM
OK, I found the very simple solution!

If the IP address of the Mac you are trying to connect to is: 192.168.1.190
And the username of the user whose files are being shared is: foo

You should enter your smb login username as: 192.168.1.190foo
On some systems you may need a backslash before it: \192.168.1.190foo

I found this information here:

Good luck everybody!
