    Hi Guys,

    what a great site! I am working from home now and need to network my Macs and my Windows machines. So far I can see and connect to all of my windows machines from my Macs, but I can't connect from a windows machine to my Macs. I have done this successfully in the past (over a year ago), but it isn't working now.

    I have followed all of the windows advice and the macuser advice on setting up networking. My macs (OSX Mojave) are set. Filesharing ON. Shares and files using both SMB and AFP ON. Network WINS setting to Workgroup. I am able to connect between Macs no problem. I am able to connect to the windows machines no problem. My main Windows machine is set to network discovery ON and is showing my NAS drive / Other Windows machines and allows me to access them no problem. But I cannot see the Macs.

    Can anyone help??

    Thanks in advance
