I have a Performa 6300CD networked through a Asante Friendlynet hub to a G4 which had been working fine until today. I keep getting the error message "File sharing could not be enabled" when I try to open file share to let the G4 '"see" the Perfoma. The Perfoma has several partions and I was running OS 8.6, I also tried OS 8.5 and I did a clean install of OS8.6 to an empty partion, all to no avail. The network is up, I can connect to the G4 and the Performa can connect to the internet, but file sharing will not work. I'm stumped. If it isn't software, the Perfoma has a Macally LC PDS ethernet card which is only 3 months old and as I said I can transfer files to the Performa but I can't get access to it from the G4. Regards, Fred

Solved the problem, each drive or partition has to have at least 360K of free space, I copied a large file to a partition and left almost no space. File share will not enable if any partition or drive doesn't have enough space available.
There is an excellent posting on the Apple Tech site which addresses this issue:

Where did you find that PDS ethernet card? I have the same machine and have been looking for a way to get it connected to the Ethernet for a long time.

If E-bay is not your cup of tea, I got my card and assante hub from Small Dog Electronics, very helpful, good prices and quick service. It is a Macally card for around $40 I think?? Regards, Fred
