Windows/MAC Networking-2 questions

By rgrowcock ·
I have a friend that would like to Network several Windows based computers, XP Pro/Home, and Win9x as well as connect to a iMAC.

I have worked with networking Windows computers, but have never had to integrate a MAC system. Can someone steer me in the right way to do this?

As a side question, I have tried to connect on Win98SE to a XP Pro box and have not been able to see them together. My thought is that the XP C is NTFS and the 98 box can't recognize it. I am able to mount the 98'sdrives to the XP box with no problems, just not the other way around. Could the NTFS partition be blocking me? Any thoughts on this as well? Thanks Folks!!

Windows/MAC Networking-2 questions

by RAMGarden In reply to Windows/MAC Networking-2 ...

The easiest way to hook a Mac into a windows network is with Mac OS X's windows file sharing. Look under system preferences, sharing to find the checkbox for windows file sharing. This will only let you share certain predefined folders. I use both personal file sharing and windows file sharing. That lets me login with the username and password that's stored on the Mac and gives access to that user's home folder. If you have an older version of Mac OS, you will need to set up AppleShare. Look here for instructions for that: http://www.mac512.com/filesvr.htm
