OSX WIN98 NETWORK: Is it possible to share files and printers by setting up a network with these two OSs?
Posted on 2004-03-28
i am trying to network these two machines together so eventually i can connect the printer and all my external storage devices to the PC running WIN98 (or higher if needed). once this is done i would like to be able to connect to this network from my laptop anywhere in the house. my laptop is running OSX10.3.3.
will i need to purchase and upgrade for the PC? what is the easiest way to do this with minimal purchases for the PC running WIN98?
the only reason i have this machine is because it is my girlfriend's and i use it to view my web designs on PC platform browsers. i figure since i have the machine i would like to put it to better use as a storage a printing hub.
let me know if i am barking up the wrong tree and if there is a better way to do this.
ideally, at one point i would like to be able to remotely access my storage and printer remotely via the internet while on the road.
thank you for the help. i could really use it.
