After a trouble free installation of Lion I've noticed that my Windows computers can't "see" the iMac now running on Lion on the wireless network, however the Windows computer can "see" the MCP which is still running on Snow Leopard.  The strange thing is that the iMac (Lion) can connect to the Windows computers and bring files over.


Any ideas as to the reason/solution to this one way traffic wold be gratefully received.

So the PC can see SL and vice versa

Lion can see PC but not vice versa correct?


Try these steps


1. Create a new location on Lion > replicate the issue again

2. Go to sharing preferences > File sharing > options > untick SMB here, Restart. Do the same thing but make sure to tick both SMB inside options and File sharing inside sharing preferences


replicate the issue
