    fileshare powerbook 280c to win xp machine
    Hey,
    I am trying to connect my powerbook 280c machine to my Windows XP machine (or to a hub so my XP machine can see it) using Appletalk for filesharing. The powerbook does not have an ethernet card, only a modem. I have not done this in a long time so dont laugh.

    What is the best way to file share between these 2 machines?

    I suppose I could create an RJ-11 to RJ-45 cable but I could not find anywhere on the net about the correct wiring between the two.

    thanks for the help,
    jon

    without a network connection i think you'll be hard pressed to find and easy solution.
    direct serial connection might work (does for win to win boxes, its a pain to set up though)
    usb direct connect maybe?
    can't think of anything else at the moment, time for me to go to bed.

    get a Ethernet Card then it works really fine.... just connect with samba (?) apple button+K in the finder and then you see sour machines in network... it works really fine....
