  • Connecting to Mac File Sharing from Vista PC

    Posted on October 21st, 2008 Alan No comments

    I've been befuddled by Vista, unable to connect to my MacBook Pro from my Vista laptop.  I could always connect from the MacBook to my Vista laptop, though.  Connection issues has been a source of pain for me ever since I started using Vista.

    I searched and came across this tip that solved all my problems!  Thanks Matt!

    1. “Click Windows Visa Start Orb
    2. In search box, type “regedit” and return
    3. Once regedit opens, click File -> export to make a backup copy
    4. Navigate to Computer HKEYLOCALMACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Control Lsa.
    5. In the right pane, right-click the “LmCompatibilityLevel” key and select “modify”
    6. Change the value from 3 to 1
    7. Exit regedit and you should now be able to properly authenticate to your Mac OS X (or other Samba) share.”
