I have a Windows 7 machine (64bit Ultimate) I'm using as a file server... but only other Windows 7 machines can connect to it, NOTHING else can.
I'm at a dead end here, I've tried reinstalling formating everything and it's still the same. I've tried disabling the firewall and it still can't connect. I've also tried setting the power settings to never turn off, but it's still not working. Tried changing the advanced sharing settings to using lowe encryption and turned off password sharing and nothing.
My Macbook can't connect to it at all, but when I run bootcamp into Windows 7, it can connect to it fine. Even my Nexus 7 can't connect to it...
NOTHING is working and I've tried everything I can think of.
This machine is used for media sharing as well, so I can't run WHS on it. It needs iTunes and some other UPnP programs that just don't run on WHS.
Oh and if I run remote desktop from the Macbook, it connects fine... It's just when I try to connect to the server it just can't.
Only work around I've gotten is to restart the machine...
