I've been trying to network my iMac and a Dell Vostro 3400 running 32-bit Win 7.


The iMac sees the Vostro just fine, and I can read and transfer files. But althought I have SMB sharing selected on the iMac, and all the appropriate files marked as shareable, the Vostro does not see the iMac.


Following advice on Windows forums, I've tried a clean reboot on the Windows side and even disabled the Windows firewall; it still won't see the iMac.


I wondered if there's something else I need to do on the iMac side to make this connection work.


(I AM able to print to the printer connected to the iMac, using Bonjour, etc.)
