    Win 8 and OS X server

    I am trying to get file sharing to work with my win 8 machine and my OS X Server. The computers are on the same network with the same workgroup but I can't seem to connect. I was able to connect with the wife's win 7 home machine until I upgraded it to win 7 Ultimate now it wont connect either.

    I am at my whit's end, can someone give me any help?
