    cannot access shared folders from my MAC


    I have a folder on my Windows box (7232 x64) shared. With build 7100 I was able to access this folder via my Macbook just fine. Now with build 7232 I can no longer mount the share.

    The macbook says the share is not available.

    ANy ideas?

    I just tried connecting to the windows 7 share by typing in the IP address on my MAC.

    It worked!

    Is there anyone I can restore the settings back, so I can use the network share name?
