Since I can remember, my work has used Windows Server for all the PCs, leaving the Macs to be standalone, accessing files via SMB. Never bothered me too much but now I have started using Parallels to access some of the apps that are only available for PC users and because I am not logged in as a 'recognised' user from the server (just connecting via SMB to the files and folders), I am not granted access. I read that for previous versions of OS there was a possibility to connect to Windows (where the log in for the Mac would be the same from Windows Server) but haven't found anything for OS 10.6, not sure if this has been removed or changed. Not sure it is clear, hope it is. Can anybody help?
