  1. Finally! I've got it!!! From any windows machine, I can open Internal Exploder... oops, I mean Internet Explorer, and type ftp://75.66.xxx.xxx:21//Volumes/Secondary%20Hard%20Drive in the address bar to access the files in my secondary hard drive. A message is displayed saying I don't have permission to access the page, but I can log in with my user name & password (File>Login as...), and VIOLA, all my files are available to me. I can drag & drop files between my machine and the machine I'm sitting at, or even edit the files remotely. PERFECT!!! Hooray!!! It was so simple. I
  2. I also use both, and can say from personal experience, a Mac will outperform a similarly equipped PC. Is it from the registry? Unix system? Better designed hardware? Who knows. All I know is it works, and that's proof enough for me. I've been using the same Mac PowerPC since 2002. I've never had a problem with it, and it's never, ever, not once crashed on me. Also it can keep up with any of my friends' newer PC's. Did I mention I've never used any kind of antivirus software? It's built tough, and designed to simply stay running. It doesn't slow down over time like PC's do either. You're gonna
  3. I've got it working, finally. I had to put my mac in the DMZ, which I am okay with for now. Later I will remove it & mess with the post forwarding. Now my question is this: I can access all the files on my primary hard drive, but how can I get to the stuff on my secondary hard drive?
  4. I'm not interested in seeing and controlling my desktop remotely. I can use LogMeIn for that. All I want it to be able to access my files from outside my network. This can't be that unusual of a question. I'm sure somebody has done this before.
  5. This sounds like everything I've done. I put the Mac in the DMZ to eliminate the port forwarding issue. I know the Mac is set up correctly because if I eliminate the LAN and plug the router directly into the Mac, I can access the Mac from anywhere. With the router between the Mac & the modem, I get nothing, even with the Mac in the DMZ. Am I missing something?
  6. Okay. I've been working on this thing for a while now. I've read everything I could get my hands on, and I found many answers. Unfortunately, I still cannot access my Mac's files from outside of my network. From my Dell computer, which is a part of my LAN, I open Internet Explorer and type "ftp://192.168.1.10" in the address bar, then click "File > Login as..." and enter my login name and password for my mac, then just like that I have access to all my files that are stored in my personal folder on the Mac. I can even log in with my wife's name and password instead and have access to a
  7. I appreciate the advice. I'm reading everything on the internet that I can find, and I think I'm getting a decent idea about networking basics. I can now access my Mac's files from my Dell, and I can access the Dell's files from the Mac, so that's a big part of my problem solved. I can't print to the Mac's printer from the Dell yet, but I've been playing with Bonjour on my Dell, and I think I'm getting close. Printing from that machine isn't super important right now, so I can continue plugging away at that until I figure it out. What I really want is to be able to access the computers on
  8. I've installed the new printer on the PC I don't know how to use bonjour. I don't even know what bonjour is. Here's a screenshot of my printer sharing preferences on the Mac: http://marcleonti.com/PrinterSharing.tiff
  9. Still can't find it. I went to System Preferences > Accounts > Login Options, but I didn't see Network Account Server or anywhere to click edit. Here's a screenshot: http://marcleonti.com/SysPrefs.tiff I am using Mac OS X 10.5.8
  10. Thanks for the link to the guide. It was written for Mac OS X 10.3/10.4, which is a bit different from 10.5, which I am using. I can't find any program called "Directory Access" on my Mac, but I did find programs called "Directory" and "Directory Utility". Unfortunately, neither of these programs appear to function like "Directory Access" does in the guide. I couldn't figure that part out, but I did follow the rest of the guide & now I am able to access shared folders on the Dell from the Mac, which is nice. That answers question #4. I've made a little headway on printing to the Mac's
  11. Okay. I've been messing with this thing ALL day. I've got some things working, but some things still aren't working. I'm frustrated & ready to smash something. Let's take it from the top. Here's what I'm working with and my dilemma: Computer #1: Mac Power PC G4 Quicksilver 2002 running OS X 10.5.8 Computer #2: Dell "old piece of crap" running Windows XP Version 2002 Service Pack 3 Router: Linksys WRT54G V8 router running DD-WRT v24 (05/24/08) micro - build 9526, restored to factory defaults Modem: Motorola Surfboard SB4200 flashed with Sigma v1.5b Printer: Lexmark

  13. I did what you said, but it wouldn't work. Instead, I opted to "Use DHCP with manual address" and typed in the current IP to keep it permanent. Then I went to the router's setup page by typing it's IP address in my browser window and set "static DNS 1" to the permanent IP I entered in my network settings on the mac. Now what? Also, are you unfamiliar with using windows' built in ftp client, or mac's built in ftp server?
  14. I have a Mac. FTP server is built in. Windows computers have an FTP client built in, so it works out pretty good. How do I set a static IP address on my Mac? How do I open the proper FTP ports in the router & forward them to the Mac?
