Hi all,
i've recently met the challenge of networking a imac laptop and a toshiba laptop and this has caused some minor confusion. i would have assumed to set the IP addresses in the same domain (ie: 192.168.0.1 &192.168.0.2 or something) would have worked. Has anyone managed to do this? is there S/W i need to do it?

Cheers

Cian

First off - no such thing as an iMac laptop - but what are you trying to do with these two machines? Do you want to be able to exchange files? What OSes are running on them? If you're running OS 9 or earlier on the Mac then you'll need something like PC/Mac LAN to exchange files with the PC - unless you're running 2K Server or 2K3 Server. If you have one of those server OSes then you can set up the File Sharing for Macintosh service.
