Newb here, I have a 24 inch Imac version 10.6 and a hp g62 laptop running win 7 I have successfully networked the 2 together. My problem is that I can see folders,files etc from the pc on my mac, but when I try to open a folder on the pc from the mac I get a network error on the pc that says: Windows cannot access \\IMAC-E16BF6\Public Folder you do not have permission to access \\IMAC-E16BF6\Public Folder.Contact your network administrator to request access. I feel that I am missing something simple,but I guess I'm too dumb to figure it out! So that's why joined here to get some good advice. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
