Help logging into Windows 2000 computer
I have been trying all of the different fixes I have read on this board for logging into my windows 2000 computer from OSX. I haven't done it yet!!!!
my ip address for my windows 2000 computer is:
and the computer name is p4win2k
I have tried
I then get a box to come up:
SMB/SIFS Filesystem Authentication
On my windows 2000 computer, the only password is when I turn on the computer. Administrator comes up in the box as the user name, and all I have to do is hit return and not type in a password. I have no idea what to type in here. This is the furthest I have been along the way.
When I type in Administrator and hit return I get a box with: (error=-36)
thanks for any help

This worked for me
Well, this worked for me
On your PC, right click on one of your main hard drives and select the properties. go the the sharing tab. If it has that $ in front of the name, try "unshare" then apply and then "Share" and apply.
This worked for me when I was having trouble connecting to my PC. The $ should be gone after this.
On a side note, just yesterday it stopped working. I can still see the PC on the network, and even PING to it. but it just searches forever when I try to log in??

getting rid of the default shrares isn't a good idea.
nor is sharing folder(s) w/ a blank password.
1) create a new (non admin) user on your win2k machine. give it a username and a password (like username: mac password: apple)
2) create a new folder on your system, like c:\shared
3) on your new folder- right-click -> properties, sharing, choose a name to use (again, use a single-word like 'shared') for the 'permissions' add this new user with read/write permissions.
4) still from the win2k machine, create a new (text) file in the c:\shared folder (like test.txt
go to your mac, and try and connect as before (you might have to add the 'volume' or share name to your statement below ("smb://192.168.1.101/p4win2k/shared") use the mac/apple account and see if you can connect.
see if you can 1) read the file, 2) modify the file

You should be able to cut the name of the computer out of the URL. Just use smb://192.168.1.101
As for the username and password, etc....make your username Administrator, password blank and domain p4win2k. I would recommend setting up a username and password, though (as hakalugi suggested).
