How can i use my PC as a server for my wireless network, with a cabled Mac attached?
Posted on 2006-11-13
I have a PC, with a wireless connection to my wireless router/modem. My Mac is attached to my PC via an ethernet cable, to allow internet access. I can access all resources fine, but when using any file sharing for download climbing videos I get errors as ports i.e 6881 are reserved by another IP address (which doesn't appear to be on my netowork - something like 192.168.0.106 - a local address, but not assigned to my PC or Mac)
I have assigned a local IP address to my Mac, and have also tried havign it assigned by the DNS server.
Do I need to set up a proxy server or something to allow these ports to be used? My windows and Mac firewall is off, and so is the firewall on the router, I've tried setting up a virtual server on the router using the mac IP address and the ports required (UDP and TCP)
Does anyone have an idea of how to allow my MAc ports to be used? I've tried lots of different ones too.... 50000 etc
