I ahve a Macintosh G3 networked using NT. I ahve the Mac services installed and when I goto chooser on the MAC I do see the Servers name.  I can even send a message to the Mac from the Server.

The problem is that I see the UAM folder on the Mac but if I put something in the folder either from the MAC or on the server I can't see the File I transfered in ther other machine.  

With the Laser postscript prin ter on the network, I can choose the printer on the MAC but when I goto print it says "cant frind printer".  

The one thing I don't have set is TCP/ip setup on the MAC because it is being used for an ISP. Couldthis be my problem.

So I do ahve some kind of connection but I am missing something to be able to share files and printers.  Please help.

amd25,

25 points is a bit weak for a problem of this size...

If you can connect to the NT server with Chooser then you don't need TCP. If you expect to access the Internet through the NT server then you do.

On the NT server run File Manager and CREATE a Macintosh volume. You can create a new folder or make an existing folder a Mac volume. Once you do this then you will be able to mount this volume on the desktop after logging in through Chooser.
