Tip: Accessing OS X shares with Vista

  1. Many are reporting problems getting VISTA to access shares on OS X systems (all versions)

    The problem is the manner of authenticating users; see this article SAMBA Authentication

    Hmm. Your topic seems to indicate problems with OS X getting to Vista shares, when I think its actually the other way around. Vista can't get to OS X shares.

    The reason I think that is when I looked at my old thread where we discussed it, the fix I used was exactly what you just linked (but different site).
