    I am very new to the Mac world, I have recently bought a duo core mini. I am having tremendous problems getting it to work with the rest of my Windows XP based network.

    If I turn off the firewall on the PC, using smb and the ip address for the PC I can gain access to the shares on the PC hard drives. If I turn on the firewall again I can continue to access the share that I have logged onto, but no others, I get an error 36. If I unmount the share, I can no longer get back into it. I have set the firewall up with smb enabled and ports 135-139, 445 open for tcp and udp.

    Does smb use a different port during the connection and mount routine does anyone know ? Am I missing something very basic ?

    where are you seeing the error? open up console in the utility folder and check the logs there? any more verbose logs?

    Console log

    Error is initially from Finder when trying to connect.

    Console log does not provide much help !!

    mount_smbfs: negotiate phase failed: syserr = Software caused connection abort
