    Hi, I just switched and have a G4 iBook, 1.2GHz,60GB, Superdrive, BT, Airport Extreme and Tiger installed.

    I'm trying to access my PC from my Mac. I have done the following. Switched off firewall on Windows.
    Setup workgroup and shared the relevant folders.
    Tried to connect using Finder->Go-> Connect to Server

    I add teh IP address, my Windows user name and password (same as Mac anyway) but it complains about the name or password. I can see the machine under My home directory-> Network but cannot connect.

    Please help!

    Change your password on the Windows machine. Also, the username/password is case sensitive, so make sure that is in correct order as well.

    On some of the Windows servers I connect to, the password is case sensitive, and the username is all caps. Not sure why, but you might want to try this as well.
