Hi Guys,

I'm having a little issue with my office network. We have a small network of 4 Windows 7 PC's and 2 Apple Macbooks pro running Snow leopard 10.6.8

We use to have an old server that was running Windows XP which was working great with all the computers. 2 weeks ago the server died, so instead of buying a new server I just moved the "Shared" folder (with all our files) to one of the Windows 7 PC's and made that our new server.

Everything has been working fine between the PC's, they have NO issue. But the macs refuse to stay connected. They'll connect fine and work Ok for a few hours, but eventually they will always disconnect and we'll have to restart them. We restart them several times a day and it's very annoying.

The windows 7 share is just a regular share with the "everyone" group getting full permissions (even though we connect with the Administrator account on the PC). I disable 128bit encryption, and enabled SMB file sharing on the macs, I disabled sleep and hibernation on all machines but it still disconnects.

Does anybody have any ideas to what could be causing this or what alternatives I can take?

Is there a way to start an AFP server on that Windows machine?
