I have a cable modem hooked up to a G3 desktop beige machine with os 9. I have a PowerBook G4 that I'd like to share files with. It's hooked up to a router off of the cable modem. I have turned on file sharing on the os 9 machine, and I thought i could just use the ip address of the os 9 machine in the connect to server part of the "go" menu in the os x machine and have it work. Do i need to somehow tell the os 9 machine an ip for my powerbook? HELP! i figure someone has done this, but i can't find out where they've posted instructions on how they did it.

Ok, I can put stuff in the Drop Folder and get stuff out, but still can't log in as a registered user from the os 9 machine. It wants a password that I can't find or seem to have. Also, I can't log on to the os 9 machine by using the go menu and putting in the ip address. Help!

I can log into the PowerBook from the os 9 machine, but can't log onto the os 9 machine from the Powerbook. I have file sharing on on both machines. I have tried the ip route to log on to the os 9 machine, but it says it's not operational or is the wrong ip.
