Hello
For some reason, I am unable to click the box to turn on "personal file sharing". Also, I am unable to turn off "printer sharing". Any thoughts or suggestions?
I am on a powermac G5 using 10.4.11
Thank you!
QUOTE Thanks

yes, i have the admin access. it's bizarre, because all the other items on the list can be turned on and off (windows sharing, remote login, etc). just can't turn on file sharing or turn off printer sharing.
?
