Mac clients see but can't connect to SBS 2003 share

Appleshare appears configured correctly on my SBS 2003
server, but when my Mac user tries to connect to the
share, the only option highlighted is "Guest". Clicking
connect is unsuccessful, as the pop up reports access is
denied. I have a mix of OS 9x and OS 10x systems.
Appleshare routing is enabled in Routing and Remote Access
on the SBS 2003 server, the zone is created and all Macs
have joined this AT network. The Macs see the zone and
the server, but connecting to the share fails. The event
log doesn't report much of anything related to these
connection failures. The server's NIC has Appletalk
protocol installed but File and Print Services for
Macintosh are not an option. I think I'm missing one last
setting.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi Jon!

Let's simplify this a little first. Unless you are using your SBS server as
a router to connect two different Appletalk networks, you don't need to have
Appletalk routing enabled nor do you need any zones.

For your connect problem, how are your Macintosh settings configured in the
Computer Management MMC? You can right-click Shared Folders and view the
Macintosh configuration. You may need to set the logon to allow both
Microsoft and Apple cleartext passwords. You can optionally choose to
install the Microsoft UAM from

0sfm on your Macs.

Hope this helps! bill
