    Mac connect from Vista

    Hi Yawl,

    I have a Vista Ultimate system, a Windows XP Pro system, and a Mac Mini, all networked. I can go to Mac shared resources easily from the XP system, but can't from the Vista system. Details:

    Mac computer name: RedDelicious
    Mac username "short name": johnnyappleseed

    Vista system computer name: PanSpermia

    On the XP system, I double-click the RedDelicious item in the workgroup folder. It asks for username and password. I type username = "johnnyappleseed" and the password, then I can see shared folders, printers, etc. no problem.

    On the Vista system, I double-click RedDelicious in the Network folder. It asks for user name and password. I type username = "johnnyappleseed" and the password. It complains about user name and/or password, and replaces username with "PanSpermiajohnnyappleseed", as if johnnyappleseed should be an account on the Vista system, instead of on the Mac.

    If I change the username to RedDeliciousjohnnyappleseed, it still complains.

    What gives? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Joe,

    Yes, it helped perfectly. The part I was missing was, the policy change.

    Thanks!
