I just installed Leopard yesterday, and I am trying to access my Vista PC as a device in finder, but nothing is coming up. I especially want to be able to print from the printer connected to the PC via my Mac. I have the PC configured for file sharing and the works. They are on the same network. I just can't seem to figure this out.

On campus I can see other network computers in the finder without a problem.

I appreciate the help.

Same thing happened to me today, usually Vista showed up on Tiger, but it wasn't showing up on Leopard.

Firstly make sure file sharing is on in both Leopard and Vista. Then, instead of trying to find it in the Finder, press cmd + k, and enter:

smb://ipaddress

Then you can log into your Vista computer!

Finally! I was one day away from reverting back to Tiger, but now that Leopard can see my Vista PC, I wont have to.

Thanks.
