I am running a windows 7 laptop and my mac mini with 10.7. 


I have a single file share setup on the mac which is NTFS based (confirmed permissions are read/write).


I am unable to connect to the Mac from the windows computer.  When I enter \\\sharename I am prompt to enter the mac's login account info. When I enter the only account info I have it stays in a loop and I never log in.  It was working fine in Snow Leo.


Here is what I am also seeing on the File sharing prefs on the mac:

Even after entering the correct password several times, it still tells me its incorrect.  I have reset the password a couple of times to make sure it wasn't that and rebooted a few times and still the same thing.


Other things I have tried"

- Disabled firewall on the Mac

- Disabled / Enabled File sharing and removing / readding the shares again (rebooting afterwards)


All didn't make any difference.


Not sure why it works on Snow and now not on Lion. 

Please help!



Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
