    I am trying to use my PB/Tiger at my office to connect to our Corporate network.
    I tried Connect to server:
    smb://s10000/westfiler/migrate/s20000/og
    OG is the shared folder
    It connects, but only to westfiler - then when I try to drill down I get an empty folder.
    any ideas?

    Here are a few.

    Windows machine. (Make sure nobody else is connected to the file!!!!)
    right click OG
    select sharing
    click Do not share, click Apply, click share, click Apply

    Check both machines firewalls.
    Mac--> Sys Prefs --> Shareing --> Firewall --> Windows.

    Windows (I can't remember off the top of my head, google for the OS it runs 2k or XP, server, home, pro etc...)

    Windows, folder options (I don't know if this works while shareing, but make sure that Hide file extension for know file types is unclicked, and hidden files are not hidden.
