Hi All,

I am trying to configure my mac to operate as a server for both my Mac and PC environment via wireless.

How could I configure my mac or my PC to function as a server for my data files via a direct wireless connection, without the need for a hub or router? Is there software that will allow me to do this such as PC Maclan or could I just do it directly without the need for any 3rd party applications?

I would also like to have my windows machine operate as a print server as well, where I could print from my mac, through the PC to the printer.

If anyone could offer advice or suggestion I'd appreciate any advice or direction.


QUOTE Thanks

Use the Airport menu to create a network. Or check out the Internet tab in the Sharing Preferences.
