    Thanks to this forum I've got my new Vista machine sharing files with my MacBook Pro and vice-versa. Thanks a ton edesignuk!

    Now I am having trouble connecting from my Mac to the printer I have on my Vista machine. Anyone experiencing this kind of issue?

    When asking for help with a peripheral, always give the model of the peripheral.

    I have the same issue.
    Mac OS X 10.4.9 to Windows Vista Home Basic

    Samsung ML-4500, printing worked fine when the printer was being shared by Windows XP SP2.

    With Vista, I get the following error:Unable to connect to server with the provided password and username. Error: 256

    Connecting to this Vista share from Windows XP SP2 works (using the same username and password)
