  Connecting Mac OS X to Windows PCs

I have connected MAC & PC OK I can access windows from MAC but not MAC from PC.

I am using MAC OSX 10.2.

The shared folder on the MAC is not listed in Network Neighbourhood. I have changed settings on MAC according to instructions.

Any ideas ?

    I haven't experienced this problem myself. You can add the Mac's IP address to your LMHOSTS file. There is an LMHOSTS.SAM (sample) file in %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc that you can rename to LMHOSTS and edit. Here is a sample entry:
    ipaddress    hostname            #PRE

    After you add an entry for the Mac, you can run the command nbtstat -R to load the entry.But you shouldn't have to do this; I'm not sure why your Mac isn't showing up.
