In Tiger, it was a piece of cake. Right under network in finder I would find all the Windows servers and PCs connected. In Leopard however, I have to use the "connect to server" option to connect to any Windows servers and can't view anything except other Macs on the "shared" space in finder. I know this is a known problem and I have seen postings on various sites to try different things but still I have no solution. Does anyone out there know a solution to this problem?

I am having the exact same problem. I spent 2 hours on the phone with a specialist who walked me through a hundred steps on both my mac and pc without a successful outcome. I am very frustrated......

In Mac OS X 10.5 go to (System Prefernces>>Network>>Advanced>>
in the WINS Configrations you must manually enter workgroup name.

Do you have OSX Firewall enabled?

If these windows PCs are running Vista try disabling UAC after making sure folder sharing is setup.

What is UAC?
