I have two machines one is Mac OS 9 and the other is Mac OS X I want to do the following :

1. Share  the dialup internet which is on on Mac OS 9 to Moac OS X

2. Share an epson Stylus 810 usb printer installed on Mac OS 9 so that it can be used from Mac OS X

3. Make a shared folder on eah computer where in both the computers will place files to be shared from each other.

Now what i did i connected them through cross over gave OS 9 IP 192.168.0.10 and OS 10 The IP 192.168.0.1

now the problem is when i go to TCP/IP on OS 9 it says Ethernet or PPP if I choose Ethernet the file sharing works but the internet does not on OS 9 and OS 10 when i choose PPP the Network goes off can u siggest me something probably steps to do it.  I have enable web sharing from the Controlpanel in OS 9

Also Let me know i enabled file sharing on both it works but i want to share a particular folder on each pc when i try to connect thru os 10 to os 9 it says no volume mounted for sharing pls let me know where i am missing

Now the printer shows that it is shared on os 9 i enble usb printer sharing .

1) OS 9 wont do internet connection sharing without 3rd party software. You'd be better off sharing the connection from OS X or updating the OS 9 machine to OS X.

2) OS X wont access an OS 9 shared printer. Very different shared printer setups. OS 9 should be able to access an OS X shared printer though.

3) It works for you now, but the previous 2 issues preclude you from using OS 9 as the "server".
