    Hi All,

    Wondered if any of you out there have experienced this issue at all.

    We have a windows 7 pro workstation setup in workgroup fashion not on the domain with 1 account which is an administrator

    setup a basic share on the machine and gave full rights on both ACL and share permissions on windows machine to the administrator account.

    It runs a piece of software which monitors this "hot folder" and then prints out the data dropped on by the macs.

    We have a number of macs that then copy files to this share effectively drop it on.

    Bit of a mixed environment of 10.6 and 10.8 macs along with some new 10.9 macs.

    Since introducing the 10.9 macs into this environment we are having a problem where after 15 minutes of a reboot of the win machine we loose the connections on all macs and cannot remount to windows box without rebooting it yet if we browse on a windows machine to it all is working fine.

    We were connecting over smb:\\ip address and then using the admin login credentials.

    I have tried cifs:\\ip address and this has had mixed results but now getting different errors of -8060 then back to the normal error of -50

    only a reboot is fixing it and as you can imagine its getting very laborious.

    Anyone else seen anything similar and heard of a fix.

    Thanks,

    Lee

    Hi, what's your anti virus software setup on the PC end?
    Also, check the firewall status while you at it.
    I had a similar problem before with a Windows 7 64bit and a XP machine.
    It went fine since a reconfig the security setups.

    hope it helps,
    good luck.
