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
