View Full Version : Windows 7 SMB Shares, sudden access denied

Jul 3, 2012, 02:22 PM
Hello everybody,

I have a problem with my Windows 7 "File Server" and the access from my MacBook Air with Lion. I have several shared folders on the Windows 7 machine and with a fresh booted Windows 7 there are NO problems.

But, after some minutes or hours, I cannot connect from my MBA. An error message appears and tell me that the server name or ip was not correct.

The only thing I can do is reboot.

I followed http://www.trickyways.com/2011/08/access-pc-windows-7-files-from-mac-os-x-lion/ for sharing. I also activated the File and printer sharing on my MBA.

Can anybody help me? Thanks in Advance!
