View Full Version : Sharing files between PCs and Macs

Aug 7, 2004, 09:30 PM
On my home network I have 2 macs (Runing OS X 10.3) and one PC running Windows XP. Whenever I try to connect to a remote folder from my PC on my Mac it crashes the finder. Sometimes it will work fine, but most of the time the finder crashes. Does anyone know why this would happen?

Any networking "enhancements" on your Mac? Firewall on your PC? Does it crash or just stall for a long time? Typing in the wrong password?

Password is definately correct as it does work sometimes. All the computers in my home are networked through the aiport wireless system. The airport base station has the firewall, however the firewall on the PC is not enabled. There is also no firewall software installed on my Mac

Basically what happens is, the folder opens, then suddenly the finder relaunches.
