Posted on 2004-09-12
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 .
