    This a rather old thread - you might have better luck opening a new one. What is your question? Does it work? Yes.

    To connect from PC to mac you put (in Windows) THENAMEOFYOURMAC\YOURUSERONTHEMAC and then YOURMACPASSWORD as the password.

    In OSX you also need to tick the box that allows Windows sharing.

    Works fine for me.

    If you have an issue then please explain what you have done and perhaps we can help as there are lots of people here who use both.

    you put (in windows) where?
    in the address bar in the window below?



    And by "the name of your mac" what you mean?
    MACBOOKPRO-F2AF as you see in the windows above
    MacBook Marcos as in the winodw below or
    MacBookPro-Marcos.local as the small letters in the window below?



    On the top of it if you go to System Preferences>Users> and right click you administrator account and go to advance options (or something like that) you get the window below with more options to name your mac for this matter, Account Name or Full Name.



    As you see I have Windows sharing enabled



    And any attemp to connect to my mac's shared directories with all names possible until now and my mac's password leads me straight to the window below with a "wrong password" alert



    I 'm on Win10 Home x64 and a MacBookPro 13'' mid2010 on OSX "El Capitan"

    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, Win7 Home, Linux Mint

    I did it a different way. I use a 15" MacBook Pro [from mid-2010 now with El Capitan], Win7, Win10, Win10 Insider Preview and Linux Mint 17, have a 2TB NAS drive attached to my Router and all computers, Wired or Wireless/Wi-Fi, can access the NAS for storage and retrieval of files, don't need direct access to any of my computers. I just have to Map the drive in whichever computer needs access.

    It might be that the MAC is HFS formatted which is unreadable by Windows. Then again, SMB should've already rectified that issue.

    Additional info:

    I remember that newer versions of Windows have a much more stringent network security policy. Try reducing the security policy buy opening local security policy editor -> local policies -> security options -> Nework Security: Manager Authentication level -> Send LM & NTLM...

    I have to refer you to an older thread in sevenforums to find the equivalent registry key for that setting:

    puffff, no way, there's no way

    I have Windows 10 Home, someone with the same Win version succeeded?

    I cannot pass the credentials prompt

    By the way if I type my mac's local ip in the address bar and I diagnose the connection i get this:



    One or more protocols are missing????

    Through SMB i can connect from the mac to the pc flawlessly

    That is nothing to do with this thread.

    It is an ongoing issue with Wi-Fi. There are dozens of threads about it here but no solution.

    I have 2 MBP (a 2013 on build 14352 and a 2006 on 10586). Both have suffered but the one on the latest insider build is working better. I've tried everything (re-installing drivers, running random terminal commands etc) but nothing consistently works.

    Just reboot a few times and it starts working again - at least for me.
