CIFS on Windows XP

Question asked by nyronian on Feb 6, 2009
Latest reply on May 7, 2010 by marksss
I can't seem to find the documentation on how to get CIFS working on Windows XP.  Can anybody direct me?

I can take the same war (and shared files), deploy them redhat linux and it works fine.  I go into windows explorer with \\{hostname}_a, it prompts me to log in and it works.

I currently have a development copy running on my Windows XP (SP3) machine and would like to access the local machine the same way.  \\{localhost}_a

I have searched through the wikis and on this forum (although it does not let me simply search CIFSand windows) and cannot find anything that appears to be useful to get it working.  Can someone please direct me?  Do I have to have the NetBios Protocol running on my local machine?  Is there a document somewhere that describes the Windows requirements to get any CIFS system working that may be separate from the Alfresco Documentation.

Environment:
Windows XP 2002 SP3
Tomcat 5.5
JDK 6.0
