I would like to know how to access my Mac’s hard drive and files from a Windows Vista computer. The Windows computer just won’t detect the Mac. How can I do this across the network? Any help is appreciated.
I do not think this is possible. Maybe with a little coding it is possible.
you should enable sharing and click on smb, still sometimes you can run into problems due to apples implementation of smb...
Are you asking between 2 diff workstation? Mac and PC or a MACOSX journaled HD connected to a PC?
for 1. it is done by sharing your domain IP of your MAC to the network PCs
however for 2. there's no possible way that I know of but it is possible there way around if an NTFS HD connected to a MAC.
Hello, even though the following link is dated, it might help you out:
Have you tried setting up file sharing between the computers? Make sure you enable SMB access otherwise the Windows computer won't be able to access the share.
Thanks for your help but it needs to be over a wireless netowrk or wired
