    Setting up a perminent network sharing system between vista and leopard
    Hey guys

    as u can see i want to set up a perminent network between my vista pc and my macbook running leopard. my vista pc is my media pc and thus doesnt have a keyboard/mouse normally, i can control it via synergy km switch or unreliably through a vnc. what i want to be able to do is share certain folders off my vista machine so that if i download music or video's i can save them directly to my vista pc via my macbook. Hope that makes sense? i have tried a number of tutorials but always had issues, now im so confused with so many different issues i am hopeing someone here can post a link to a start to finish tutorial for setting up what im after, or anything close to it.

    i have been reading about issues with leopard and windows networking so hioefully this isnt the case with mine.

    any help would be greatfully appreciated.

    Kind Regards

    Fraser

    I use Network Magic software. It must be installed on the PC, then you have to get the Mac add-on. This just became available for Leopard a few weeks ago. I can easily share files and folders now. This software works as long as the 2 computers are on the same network.

    just a quick question joe, do you use the free version or do you pay for one of the better versions

    I started with the free version, but I believe it has a 60 day limit and not all features. I purchased the PC version and the Mac add-on. I did not buy the high end version. I think the PC version was $29.99 and the Mac add-on was $25.00.

    Once it is set up on both machines with file-sharing set up you will have easy access to your folders.
