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.

Create Windows XP Password Reset Disk


Did you forget your Windows XP User password? You can click the "?" button to see your password hint.Or you can use your password reset disk. This article describes how to create a password reset disk for a computer that is not a member of a domain in Microsoft Windows XP.(that is part of a workgroup, or that is not connected to a network.)

What is the Windows XP Password Reset Disk?Do you need to enter a password when booting into Windows XP Pro? Afraid you might forget this password down the road and not be able to run your PC? Make a password reset disk to protect against a lost password.


Note: You may want to know how to create a user login password to protect xp.

To protect user accounts in the event that the user forgets the password, every local user should make a password reset disk and keep it in a safe place. Then, if the user forgets his or her password, the password can be reset using the password reset disk and the user is able to access the local user account again.

The Forgotten Password Wizard lets you create a XP password reset disk that you can use to recover your user account and personalized computer settings if you forget your password.

How to create a XP password reset diskTo create a password reset disk for your local user account, use the following method.

RequirementsThe following methods require a floppy disk drive and a blank floppy disk. As we all know, the floppy disk is easily damagedand it is out of date. In this demonstration, I will use a blank USB Fash Disk instead of floppy disk. Firstly make sure it is connected with your computer.

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2. In Control Panel, click User Accounts.
Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, double-click on the User Accounts icon.

3. In the User Accounts pane, click the account that you want to work with. Here I will click my account name "Andy".

4. Under the Related Tasks left side options, click Prevent a forgotten password to start the Forgotten Password Wizard, and then click Next.

5. In the drop-down menu, there are 2 options for us to choose. One is Floppy A, another is WPKEY (It is the name of my USB Flash Drive). Select the WPKEY and then click Next.

6. In the Current User Account Password box, type Andy's password , and then click Next. The Forgotten Password Wizard will start creating the disk.
Note: If the user account does not have a password, just leave it blank in the Current user account password box.

7. When the progress indicator shows 100% complete, click Next and then click Finish in the next window.


The password reset disk contains only one file called userkey.psw, which is an encrypted version of your password.

Finally Label the disk "Windows XP Password Reset" and store it in a safe place. You can use the password reset disk to gain access to your Windows XP-based computer if you forget your password.

Tips:
1.
You only need to create a password reset disk for your Windows XP logon password once. No matter how many times you change your password, this disk will always allow you to create a new one.

2. Keep in mind that anyone who possesses this disk will be able to access your account at any time, even if you change your password.You'd better store it in a safe place.

3. Not a Windows XP user? See the guides for other Windows versions.
How to Create a Windows 7 Password Reset Disk?

How to Create a Vista Password Reset Disk?

4. Unfortunately, if you've forgotten your Windows XP password and can no longer acceses Windows, you won't be able to create a password reset disk. Luckily there is a Windows password recovery program which can help you to find lost password. It is popular way of getting your password back, even you don't have a password reset disk. You can download the free tried Demo on clicking below link.

Help you to Remove Windows 7 Password


Remove Account Password & Turn Off Password Protection in Windows 7

One of the great features of Windows 7 is User account password protection. At last articles we learn how to create a Windows 7 logon password and how to change login password in Windows 7. However, there are times when removing a password from an account make sense. Learn how to turn off Windows 7 password protection.

Everyone can have his/her own account in win7. This avoids the obvious annoyances and security risks associated with sharing a desktop and having everyone's files available to all other users of the computer.
However, there are times when turning off password protection on a Windows 7 account makes sense. For example, if you are the only user of your computer, it may not make sense to have to type in a password every time you turn on your computer. Another case is that you are a forgetful person and you often forgot your Windows 7 User Password, you don't want to reset lost password each time you can't remember it.

Another reason you may want to remove account password protection is if you need multiple people to share the same account. Finally, if you want to set up a public account, you need to make sure people have access by not password protecting the account. Whatever your reasons, Windows 7 makes it easy to turn off password protection for an account.

Turn off Windows 7 Password ProtectionTo turn off password protection for Windows 7 account, make sure you are set up as an administrator on your computer. Then, begin by clicking on Start and then open up the Control Panel.start-control-panel-windows7.jpgIn the Windows 7 Control Panel, click the User Accounts and Family Safety option.

Under the User Accounts section, click on Change Your Windows Password.

In the Make Changes to Your User Account window, click on Remove Your Password.

Here, Windows 7 asks you to confirm your choice to remove your password by typing in your current password. This step is critical because it prevents just anyone from hijacking your account by removing or resetting the password. After you have typed in your current password, click the Remove Password button.

Windows 7 then takes you back to the Make Changes to Your User Account window. Unfortunately, Windows does nothing to confirm that you have indeed removed your password other than the new option on this window titled Create a Password for Your Account.

Verify Removal of PasswordYou can verify that Windows 7 has removed your password by logging out of your account and clicking on your account icon again. Notice that this time Windows 7 did not ask you for a password but instead simply logged you in.

Remember that anyone who has access to your computer can now log in to your account with typing password. Also, understand that anyone who steals your computer will also have access to your account and your private files. With no password protection, anyone can also set a new password and lock you out of your own account. Be certain that you want to turn off password protection for your account before you make your private files vulnerable.
