How do I network my mac with my pc's ??

I can surf the net but can't figure out how to look at
the pc computers on my network...

Also, where is the firewall that OS X is supposed to have.
I'm running OS 10.0.4...


thanks..

In article <10Lsf.71530$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



10.0.4 or 10.4. I ask because 10.0 was the beta release and not
very useful except as a developers platform. some people claim
that 10.1 was a beta that was sold to customers. 10.2 (Jaguar)
was the first really usable release. 10.3 (Panther) was a very
good release. And 10.4 (Tiger) is the current release.

So if you are really using 10.0.4, then see about upgrading to
something more recent. If cost is a factor, then 10.3 (Panther)
would be a good choice and should be very affordable.

The firewall is located at
System Preferences -> Sharing -> Firewall

Networking with PCs is also done via
System Preferences -> Sharing

You can enable Windows Sharing (Samba CIFS/SMB file sharing),
Personal Web Sharing (apache web server), Remote login (for ssh,
sftp, and scp), FTP Access, Printer Sharing.

You may need to use Applications -> Utilities -> Directory
Services -> SMB to change the Microsoft sharing domain to "MSHOME"

It may be necessary to use IP addresses. Depending on your
Router, you might have IP addresses of the form 192.168.*.* if
using a 3rd party Cable/DSL Router. If using an Apple Airport
Base station, then your IP addresses will have values of the form
10.0.1.*

You can find your Mac's IP address via
System Preferences -> Network -> TCP/IP

Another useful utility is the freeware (shareware?) "sharepoints"
program for the Mac.

Ok,

I found a cd labeled Mac OS X 10.1 upgrade, and installed it on top
of the 10.0.4 or 10.0.3 that I had already.

I found "firewall" under Network, and then Proxies and it saids
"Socks Firewall".

I went under utilities and directory setup, and could find anywhere
to change the domain name to "Mshome"....

Almost there....any help would be appreciated...

ltr..

Sorry pal, I don't think there was either samba or firewall in 10.1.
And definitely not both of them - which you need for Bob's excellent
suggestions to work. Otherwise you need 3rd part software like DAVE.

If you are serious about the Mac, get the most recent system that
supports it. You didn't state the model so I can't tell you which,
but since it (probably) was delivered with 10.0.4 it's reasonable to
beleive that Tiger will work. My iBook/500 came with 10.0.3.
