Hay all, just a quick question for you all. I got my PB to connect to my winblows computer just fine using the Windows Sharing service. I click on the applekey and K to bring up the 'Connect to server' window and put in all my info, I click 'keep in keychain' so I don't have to enter the user and pass all the bloody time but it never remembers the info. It isn't all the annoying just curious if this can be done.

Thanks All

Nope, no goo, didn't work.
Added it to my fav list, logged in with the keychain box checked. Then logged out, then tried to log in again and wasn't autofilled...:(

it shouldnt be autofilled. you know that box where it asks you for the password, which looks like this

it shouldnt even appear, it should already skip to the dialog box that asks you what you want to mount.
Bah, sorry cant help you more :( Never had the problem you're describing.

Tried all the suggestions, but that damn password window keeps appearing :( The keychain works with everything else though, wonder why it will not work with that..
