    Hello..

    I have three windows machines that I am connecting to (one I am pulling info off and then it is going to see the salvage yard). Here is my question:

    Under the sharing heading I can see two of the machines I want to connect to. Machine 1 and 2. But I can't see Machine 3. If I turn off Machine 1 I can then see Machine 2 and 3. If I start up VMware I can only see the vm machine and say machine 2. Does this make sense. My Mac is only allowing me to see two at a time. Is there a way to see more? If so, what do I do in order for this to happen?

    Thanks

    You should be able to see more than one. This sounds like a network problem rather than an OS problem. Can you give so more info about your setup?

    Are you sure you're not getting IP conflicts or name conflicts?

    Setup:

    Windows XP Network name: Studio-1
    Windows Vista Network name: Studio-2
    Windows 2000 handling the dhcp Network name: StudioServer

    All with their own ip address, no conflicts that way. If there was a conflict in ip address wouldn't I see under windows not just OS X? In fact I would get an error when I logged on stating the ip addrees is already being used on the network.

    Mac Pro OS X Name: Studio-3

    Router: linksys 8 port

    On the xp, vista, 2000 I can see all of the folders fine. But under the Mac I can only see two at time.
