    Question Accessing an OSX Share over VPN using Windows 7

    I am trying to access a SMB share on osx on a Windows 7 system via a VPN My Windows 7 system is on a domain which does not help matters.

    What do I put for login details?
    I put my share \\5.124.142.10\
    Windows Security Box shows asking for Username and Password to access osx system.

    I am currently putting Username and then password, but it keeps showing my windows domain name below and telling me Logon fail, unknown username or bad password.

    I have tried "\username" for username, as well as "macbook.local\username" and it does not like that either.

    I am sure it keeps trying to log me onto osx as though I was on the domain, and the OSX system is not part of any domain.
    Am I missing something?!!?!?!?!?

    Is smb turned on? And what setup is smb... Workgroup or PDC? And are you using you Mac short name or full client name?

    Thanks for your post. Yes, SNB is on, workgroup, I am using vpn ip address to connect to it. It is very odd as on the local network, I can get access to it on a windows system, it just the vpn windows system which does not seem to be able to get onto it.

    I can ssh it fine via the vpn so I know there is connectivity.

    Just a thought, try putting .\username and see if that works.

    I tried that. - Thanks anyway
    I thought it would be a good way of making sure it was not trying to authenticate me on the domain/workgroup of the machine I am physically working on.
