    Hey all, I had a couple of questions:

    1) Using Microsoft Remote Desktop Client for Mac: I am able to remotely control the PC beautifully, but is there any to drag and drop items from one machine to another?? Do I have to share files across a network or is there any to move files back and forth using the RDC??

    2) I am having trouble getting a PC to print on my printer that is attached to and shared on my Mac. I have enabled Windows sharing as well as printer sharing, but I can't see the printer any where on my PC (although I can see my computer).

    --Any thoughts, comments and solutions would be greatly appreciated.

    Does this help? It's not particularly user-friendly but it was made by Microsoft... :eek:

    I think I actually recommend the direct network file-sharing route. :)

    Try Bonjour for Windows. :)

    Thanks for the networking tip, yeah, you jsut have to access the networked disks and access them from the Mac desktop --- no drag and drop with RDC I suppose,

    but in terms of the bonjour setup -- I installed it on the bonjor software on the PC, and now it will see the Epson printer on the Mac, the drivers are installed, but it still gets a communication error when trying to print to the Mac. :mad:

    P.S. Thanks for the tips Mad, I feel like I am about 3/4 of the way there, its just the actually getting it to work part that is getting on my nerves.

    P.S.S. - thanks in advance to anyone else who has any ideas or solutions !!
