Hello all,

I am having difficulty making my Windows Server 2008 R2 see my Mac Mini. I can see the server from my Mac but not vice versa. I have tried configuring WINS on the mac with no luck.

I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise running as a workgroup.
It is on a Home Network Mode with discovering enabled.
The Workgroup name is Workgroup.

On the Mac side I have a Mac Mini running OS X 10.7
I have File sharing enabled and it Is configured for SMB
I have tried going to the wins section of the mac from my Wifi connection and tried this configuration:

Workgroup: WORKGROUP
Wins Servers: (My Routers IP address)

With no luck ............

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance !!!!!
