Thanks for the response. Unfortunately i've gone through all of those files
and then some. I just want to know if i have to have the same user accounts
for all machines. Honestly it's the mac i'm most concerned about. I would
like to be able to access my vista machine from the mac to retrieve some
rather large video files i cannot transfer via dvd or external hard drive
since FAT32 puts that block on anything larger than 4GB. I am a video editor
so this is not for any donwloads it's my raw footage i am trying to access.
What I need to know is how to get past the password prompt. I have differing
user names and passwords on both machines. I read a post on here about
- Click Pearl
- Click Control Panel
- Click System and Maintenance
- Click Administrative Tools
- Double-Click Local Security Policy
- In the left pane, click the triangle next to Local Policy
- In the left pane, click Security Options
- In the right pane near the bottom, double-click "Network security: LAN
manager authentication level"
- Click the drop-down box, and click "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session
security if negotiated"
- Click OK
But is there anything else i need to configure? And do the usernames have to
match on all systems?
