Peer to peer network between Mac OS and WindowsNT

I'm working on a PowerPC 8500/120 (System 7.5.2) and a dual Pentium (WinNT 4.0 workstation).  I have an ethernet card in both machines.  I would like to set up a "simple" peer-to-peer network between the two that will allow me to transfer files in both directions only, since I'm NOT interested in printing from both machines.  Speed is probably not an issue, unless we're talking about a transfer rate less than about 1 MB/sec.

I have looked at Dave by Thursby, but I'm afraid I just can't tell if it can do the trick for me.

My question is: If this is even possible, what hardware and software do I need to pull this off?

I have spoken to Miramar Systems (maker of PC MACLAN) and they tell me that they won't be able to support Win NT WORKSTATION until sometime later this year (October thru December).

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Hi,

  The easiest thing is to setup TCP/IP on both machines. I suspect you already have an Ethernet Hub to connect the two systems. Just setup TCP/IP using any private IP addr. 10.x.x.x
and use FTP to do file transfer.

1. I'm not using an Ethernet Hub.  I'm connecting Ethernet adapters in each machine using a UTP cross-over cable.
2. For clarification, would a valid IP address for each machine be 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2?

Yes ... it's a private class IP address. So the 2 would be valid
with a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0
