networking mac and pc

By mgwoelk ·
how do we network mac to pc. I purchaced the admin guide to tcp/ip hoping that this would answer all our questions but it didnt.

We have a mac and pc with lan cards, cable and all soft ware installed. file sharing is checked on both machines, but we cant log onto our network for some reason that we cant determan. I suspect that I havent mapped the metwork properly.

the mac shows a path to the pc but the reverse is not true. any help will be appreciated

To whom it may concern,
On the mac you need too set your TCP/IP control panel settings to manual. you will also require either a hub, switch, or a router if you like. You need to have a Static IP from your ISP and then configure your IP setting on your mac to one digit higher ie. if the IP is 90.0.0.1fromthe ISP your pc would have the 90.0.0.1 and the mac would have the 90.0.0.2 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 and the gateway would be the same address as well on your mac. if you require furtherassistence in setting this up feel free to email for i have the exact same thing running at my home.

Here is a solution that is almost free to share files from a PC to a MAC or visa versa. Any easy way to do it is to run the PC or MAC, or both for that matter as FTP servers. Depending on the OS on your PC, it may have Internet Information Services built in. Also, you can download free FTP server software off of the web for both machines. FTP is a common language that both machines speak. To access an FTP server, you can do so from your web browser. (ftp://username@machines ip address running FTP server, then you will be asked for the password) Feel free to email me if you have any questions. Good Luck.
