File Sharing No Go
Posted on 2003-11-13
Mac OS9.1 on both Powerbook 3400c/240 & G4. Until earlier today, file sharing worked perfectly. But I got it into my head to initialise the Powerbook and switch to extended format (from standard format), then reinstalled 9.1. Seemed okay, till I discovered file sharing is not happening.
Using PB as host, Connect as Guest is grayed out. Checked File Sharing & Users & Groups, and guest is allowed access to computer and programs. Trashed the preference files for File Sharing & Users and Groups, restarted, and tried again. Still no go. Zapped the PRAM. Still no go. Tried using G4 as host. Same story. Tried to create new user, with password. Cannot access. Users & Groups shows Guest access to computer and programs, but it's not working!
The host computer shows up when AppleShare is selected in the Chooser. AppleTalk is active, ethernet, but I cannot get file sharing to work.
Need to connect via ethernet. (PB modem is dead, so remote access is not possible.)
HELP? -- D. Chan
