    Hey guys, so out of the blue, all windows machines in the office cant access filesharing on my computer (powermac g5 lastest os) but can view my webserver and ping my ip fine. Everything is turned on and nothing has really changed. I cant think of what could be happening. Any help or ideas would be great.. and my macbook can access it fine. and previously there was no drama.

    Any chance an auto-install Windows Update changed the firewall settings on the Win computers?
