Mac to Windows with SMB from different Networks

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


Im trying to connect my Macbook "Office" to my Windows Xp "Home" on different networks.


Iv used the Connect To server with the following comment line smb://IP ADDRESS

after a few minutes i get an error


"Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in smb://IP address could not be read of written. Error Code -36"


i have port forwarding on the windows network router for ports 137 - 139 and 445 to forward to the windows machine i also opened those ports in the windows firewall.


I have also followed apples instructions on creating the plain text passwords.


Any help would be great!
