How to network connect and activate windows 2007 & MAC X


Set up user accounts

Users connecting to Windows Sharing must have user accounts on the Mac OS X computer that is sharing. There is no guest access. Any person who already has an account on the Mac OS X computer can use his existing account. You must log in to the Mac OS X computer with an administrator account to set this up. The steps differ for new and existing users.

For new users
  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Accounts.
  3. Click New User (10.2) or the "+" button (10.3 or later).
  4. Enter the Name and Short Name for the user who will log in from Windows.

    The user's short name is exactly how the user will enter their name when they log in to Windows Sharing. The short name is always lowercase.

    For users of Windows 98: If you log in to Windows 98 with a username, make sure it matches your Mac OS X account's short name. If you do not log in to Windows 98 with a username, you will need to create a new Windows 98 username that matches the account short name in Mac OS X. For more information on using Windows operating systems, please see Microsoft documentation or contact Microsoft for further assistance.
  5. Enter the user's password.
  6. 10.2 only: Click the checkbox for "Allow user to log in from Windows".
  7. 10.2 only: Click OK.
  8. Quit System Preferences.

If your Windows PC has is equipped with an Ethernet port, you can connect your PC and Macintosh using an Ethernet cable. By doing this, you are creating a small local network, consisting of just the two computers. Set up your Windows PC by turning on File Sharing. Refer to the instructions that came with your Windows PC if you're not sure how to do this.

To locate and connect to the Windows computer, you can use the sidebar in a Finder window. You need to know the workgroup name for the computer and the network name (called the "computer name") for the computer. To connect to the computer, you also need a user name and password and the name of the shared folder you want to access. If you don't have this information, contact the person who owns the computer or your network administrator.

If you cannot locate the Windows computer in the Network browser, you may be able to connect to it using the Connect To Server dialog in the Finder.

Make sure the Internet Connection Firewall is turned off, or if it's on make sure TCP port 445 is open to allow sharing connections.
To connect you Mac and Windows computers: step_1.gif

In the Finder, choose Go > "Connect to Server."
step_2.gif

Type the network address for the computer in the Server Address text box using one of these formats:

smb://DNSname/sharename smb://IPaddress/sharename
step_3.gif

Follow the onscreen instructions to type the workgroup name and a user name and password, and choose the shared folder you want to access.

Can't unlock


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password.

I can not get my password to work


Assuming you have Windows XP or Vista and you mean the windows log on password, if there is another user account with administrator privileges you can log in at this account, and go through settings - control panel - user accounts in order to change the password for your account.
If there isn't another user account with administrator privileges, you have to download the utility (in zip format) from this link. Extract it and burn the included iso at a cd. Boot the pc from the cd and follow the on screen steps in order to reset password.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

I have forgotten the password that i used when opening my account. please assist. thank you phill rogers


Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.
