I don't know how to set up a pc to mac network with a shared drive
Thank you Thank you
I copied whatever I needed over the network.
network or external hd
Enable file sharing on PC
Share PC HDD(s)
Browse network from Mac
External HDD works well too
I connected a cat5 cable between the two. gigabit ftw.
i'm pretty sure you need cat6 cable for gigabit, i know it's the same as cat5, just rated to handle the higher speed transmissions.
it would have to be a crossover cable, unless both nics could detect it as a straightthru and switch it for you.
just use an external hard drive, it's the easiest method
gigabit specification requires that certified NICs be autosensing. Also, you'd only need one autosensing NIC for a patch cable to work, not two.
yeah, your right. you'd only need one
it's a good idea to have a crossover cable anyways, for older nics
