Can't connect to OSX machine from Windows machine

I seem to be having the opposite of most of the networking problems on this forum. I can successfully connect to the Windows machines in my house, I've even succeeded in printing from a shared printer. Despite this, I am still not able to connect to my osx box through Windows. In system preferences I have enabled "Personal File Sharing" and "Windows Sharing". On the windows box I go to "start" -> "run" -> "\\\Jeff"; the IP being my osx box and Jeff being the short of my account. I then receive an error saying "The specified network name is no longer available." I greatly appreciate any help that anyone can offer. Thanks in advance!
