    I have a situation here that I have been cracking my head to solve it for the past few days and till now it's still not done. Here's the details:

    Location- My Office
    Computers- 2 MacBook and 1 PC running Vista (server)

    I've tried many ways to enable file sharing on the PC running Vista (using it as a server and storage) but it seems that neither MacBooks can detect and locate the PC at all. All 3 computers are connecting to the same network but the file sharing however does not even budge.

    My plan is to use the PC to store all the microsoft word documents. It would be best if the files shared can be both read and write. I did consider getting something like WD My Book World Edition and plug it to the router but that is quite expensive for now.

    Does anyone face the same or similar issue?

    What is the network configuration?
    Also do you use a firewall?
    Besides that the computer are visible on the network?
