    Hello,

    I've got a Mac mini connected to my network through wireless. The Vista computers in the house can only see the "Printers" folder on the mini. The mini can get all the files on the Windows machines. I've also got a Power Mac G4 connected to the mini and it can see all the files on the mini.

    Can anyone help me out? This has been happening for months!

    Have you enabled sharing via SMB? I believe that toggle is enabled via the Sharing pane in System Preferences, and then the options button towards the lower right of the window.

    Nah, FTP enabled/disabled shouldn't matter.
    While researching, found this. Seems to be for Mac OS X Tiger, but may be valid for Leopard, despite the lack of a "Windows Sharing" checkmark in sharing preferences. Hopefully this other link may shed some light on the situation as well.
