Okay I just configured a "software base station" thanks to the help of you guys. Now im trying to share files between two macs. How do I do this the right way. I have figured out to turn on apple talk and file sharing on both puters etc. etc. I have figured out to go to Go then connect to server etc. etc. I have the other comupters (server one) icon up on the one sharing.... but everytime I drop files and such in the servers icon or open it up and drop in there it says that that server (its says its name actually) cannot be modified.... etc. etc. and the same thing for when I drop it in the drop box. Can anyone help? Also I got in by clicking on "guest" because I dont know how to set up a password to get under there under "registered user" .... this could be the problem... i dont know... help yo!
