File Sharing on Ethernet

I have three macs (8600,9500,7100) on an Ethernet network.  Only the 9500 will share files to the others.  It looks like they are all configured the same, but I keep getting a message that anonymous login is disabled.  The only place I see that setup box is in the "Users and Groups" control panel.  It looks fine to me.  I have tossed the appropriate preferences, but still no luck...?

Do you have File Sharing enabled in the Sharing Setup Control Panel (now called File Sharing Control Panel in OS8) on the 8600 and 7100?

Yes - all three systems look identically configured.

Hiya...
On the two macs that don't get shared.
1.) Select the Hard Drive
2.) Take file down to Sharing
3.) Check the box that says something like
    "Make all enclosed items the same as this one"

No offense rickyr, but that is not a very elegant solution since it allows everyone access to everything. Files can be deleted remotely. There is a better way.

Hiya...

None taken, TheHub. If the systems to be networked require security and privacy, the correct permissions should be set up in users and groups.

I stand corrected...
