[FIXED] Could Not Connect to the Server Because the Name or Password is Not Correct

Trying to see a SMB network folder from a Mac to a PC? Are you getting the error “could not connect to the server because the name or password is not correct“? Are you running OS X 10.4? Here’s the solution…

1) Delete the Keychain for the login on the Mac.
2) Then, go to the Windows PC and Enable NetBIOS.

Open the Network Connections folder.
Right click the local area network connection and click Properties.
Double click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
Click Advanced.
Click WINS.
Click the Enable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP button.

3) Go back to the Mac and try logging in again. You should now get the username/password prompt when your Mac tries to reconnect to the PC’s SMB share.
