just got a macbook pro and after a life of windows am having a few teething problems :)
i've just set up networking and using CMD + K i can connect to smb://192..... and see/edit my windows documents. i can also connect in the same way to my linux box. however when i open my network after rebooting/logging out, there are no pcs there: i have to manually connect each time.
with windows, i am used to clicking on network and seeing all pcs in the network (including the macbook).
is there a way to auto detect all pcs in the network so that finder shows them without my having to manually connect?
a) my macbook is set to WORKGROUP (same as win pc)
b) i can connect manually and have full network access to all machines.
c) i have recreated my location several times
d) i have even put my winpc IP in the wins servers box
the funny thing is, last night i did see them, but for some reason they're gone now?
