I have a few windows based pc's running xp pro sp2 and on imac running os 9.2. I need to share the internet through the windows pc and share the files from these two machines. The windows pc is connected to the internet using a 2wilre interface device to hook up to a dsl modem onsite. The mac and the target pc to share are next to each other and hooked up to an unmanaged switch. There are 2 network adapters on the pc. One for the internet connection and the other for the lan to switch. I am using PC-Mac-Net FileShare v 6.02 to connect the two machines. This will not work. I've never had to connect a mac to pc before and never used a 2wire for internet connection. There seems to be a confilct between the two network adapters. I am giving this maximum points for SPEED....
I have the tcp/ip settings as follows
Mac 192.168.1.2 with subnet of 255.255.255.0
PC 192.168.1.3 with subnet of 255.255.255.0 on the nic without internet just to the switch
Ive downloaded and installed Dave on the mac and run the pc config wizard from dave on the pc and it comes back clean. Im at lunch now an plan on running dave to see if its something misconfigured in the pc-mac-net or in windows or mac os..........grrrrr why cant we all just get along.
Never Mind....Forget PC-Mac-Net and just go get DAVE from http://www.thursby.com/products/dave.html
. Its worth the extra $$$
