    I am having trouble with my network connection to a PC. It had been working correctly for years but now is giving me an error when I try to connect to it from any of my Macs. I can connect from my PC to the Macs without any problem, but not from the Macs to my PC. The machines are all shared on a home router. The route pings correctly and I can connect just fine using VNC. However when I use the "Connect to Server" tab in the "Go" menu I get the following error message for every share:

    Connection failed.

    There was an error connecting to the server <my PC host name>

    I am running Snow Leopard but it has been working perfectly before about a week ago. I suspect the PC has a problem but I can't find it there either. The PC is my wife's computer so I don't know all that is going on there. I have reboot all the computers, reset my router and even changed the shares on my wife's PC. Nothing has change. Anybody have any ideas. :(
