    I have a program that will copy files from my Mac Leopard Music folder wireless to the XP Music folder. It will sync the files.

    The application I believe was designed for windows-windows networking and I'm hoping I can make it work for windows-leopard.

    The application has the following fields:

    Remote Media Shares:
    I currently have this set to "\\\macbook". This is the IP address my macbook gives me and the short name.

    Local Media Path:
    I have this set to the xp folder

    Network Username:
    I have this set to "pc" which is the account I created under "Users" in the sharing tab of Leopard's preferences pane. I gave "pc" read & write access and a password. I have my music folder on Leopard added under the "shared folders" section of the sharing pane.

    Network User Password:
    I have this set to the password I gave "pc" under network username above.

    Network User Domain:
    Not sure what to put here?? I tried "WORKGROUP" I also tried "home".

    Finally, under Leopards sharing pane I have "file sharing" checked off .

    Am I doing anything wrong... do I need to do anything else? Is it just not possible you think?

    Thanks in advance!

    the only time you typically use a domain is in business type environments. You have to have a server to create a domain. If you are not connected to a domain, I would just try leaving that place blank and see if that works. You do have to enable fire sharing in order for the other computer to access the music folder. I would turn that one and leave the other field blank. Let us know what happens.
