I'm new so please pardon a repeat as I suspect my question has
already occurred. I would really appreciate if someone could clear
up my confusion or steer me in the right direction with the following:
I want to link together a Mac Titanium powerbook running OSX with a
PC running Win 2000.
I am under the impression you can do this by connecting them
physically via ethernet ports.
I am also under the impression that using "Option K" from the Mac
desktop allows you to type in a syntax (smb://.......) that will let
you see the PC's shared folders.
I cannot get this to work at all and have seen conflicting recommendations.
Does this only work with OSX server or can it be done as a 'client to
client' (peer to peer) relationship?
The most frustrating part is that both machines successfully 'ping'
the other but I just can't get the PC up in the 'Connect' window.
CAN ANYONE HELP ME OUT?
