    Wondering if you could help!

    I have gotten my WinXP to connect OK with my MacBook with no probs, but when I try to get my MacBook to connect to my WinXP I keep getting “Could not connect to the server because the name or password is not correct.”

    I have think I have got the Workgroup/Name/Password correct from right clicking on my Computer > Properties > Computer Name and getting all the info. I use the password that I log into the WinXP with. So I haven’t got a clue what the problem is…can you help?

    Q1, Yes I have gone through the whole way (well as far as trying to connect to my PC)!

    Q2, I am connecting to my Mac from my PC using the Mac name.

    Have you run the Network Setup Wizard on the XP machine to enable file and folder sharing? It is disabled by default in SP2.
