    Network problems
    Hi all

    I'm completely new to Macs but my boss has asked me to set up a file sharing network. I have looked at a few site but none have the info I need so I'm hoping I can get some help here.

    We have a Mac running OS 10.5.8 connected to a Westell router (9100EM).

    We also have a PC running Vista Home Premium SP2. This is also connected to the Westell.

    We want to be able to set things up so we can transfer files both ways but I cant see how to do this.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    2: Click Sharing
    3: Make sure the checkbox "Filesharing" is checked ON
    4: You should see the filesharing screen now,
    Click on "Options"
    5: A new screen rolls out,
    Make sure the checkbox "Share files and folders by SMB (Windows)" is checked "ON" (add any accounts if necessary.

    4: Go back to the "System Preferences Panel"
    5: Open the panel "Network"
    6: Check your IP
    7: Make sure both computers are connected in the same network.
    8: Go to Windows, and connect to : smb://"macs IP"
