    There are so many problems with this question I don't know where to start.



    Which version PowerMac?



    Which version PowerBook?



    Did you set fixed IP addresses for both computers?



    Did you turn on file sharing for either or both computers?



    From which computer are you trying to see the other?



    Which computer gets the error message? Under what circumstances?

    I was under the impression that you still needed a crossover cable when connecting a powerbook and a powermac. But more information is needed. You probably cannot provide us with too much information relating to your problem....

    fair enough



    PM SP 500 OS 9.1

    PB 15" 867 OS X2.3

    both have fixed IP

    file sharing on both

    The PM see's the PB but when I try to cannect..I get that error I/O-1072



    I was told that you don't need a crossover cable and it even states that in the doc..but..I am so new to OSX

    I am sure I am doing something wrong but I'm not sure what..

    configure: Using..manual? DHCP? etc

    anythign else?



    then I go to sharing

    services..personel file sharing on



    anything else?



    then I got to the PM

    file sharing..turned on

    shared items picked



    anything else

    You certainly don't need a crossover cable: the PowerBook's Ethernet port can work out what's at the other end.



    As for getting the sharing to work, have a look at this Knowledge Base Article.



    Not something I've done myself, but that document looks pretty much like it has everything you'll need.

    thanks Overhope..everything is working now..kind ofnot sure what I did differently but I can now mount drives from my PM on the PB desktop..can't do it the other way though..but that doesn't really matter.
