    Hi guys for some reason windows users cant access the files on my mac anymore all the mac file sharing settings are right and ive stopped and started a few things. WIndows users can ping me fine and access my web server no dramas its just the file sharing bit. Mac to mac works fine. And its def a problem with my mac as windows users can acccess other macs fine too. Im stumped any ideas ? It's visible in network neighbourhood just get permissions errors but doesnt even prompt for a username or password to login and accounts are set in the windows file sharing section on my mac :S and firewalls are off.

    in your pants
    Hmm, I just happened to be looking at something like this on some site on Google. Go to System Prefs > Sharing > Firewall > Advanced and uncheck "Block UDP Traffic". That should let Windows file sharing work.
