    Persistent home network problem
    Still trying to get my home network to work. I'm trying to get 3 Apples to talk to each other. Mine is a Power Mac hard wired and the other 2 are connecting via Airport. They show up at the network finder icon but when I try to connect I get the following error message -

    "Connection failed. Unknown user, incorrect password or login disabled." Retype or contact the administrator.

    I have set up all of the computers with accounts and the passwords are correct. What the heck is "login disabled"?

    I love the Macs but this is very vexing since I want my wife's laptop to use the printer connected to my computer.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Make sure you have File Sharing turned on

    In system preferences in the sharing folder, I have personal file sharing and printer sharing checked under the services tab. Interestingly, the ibook can use the power Mac's printer without a problem. That helps but I'd still like to have access to the files on the other macs.

    Since I've confirmed the accounts and passwords, I suspect that it's something to do with "login disabled" but I cna't find out what that means.

    Make sure you have the permissions for the shared folders on each mac set up properly
