I am trying to set up a home LAN using a Beige G3 and a PowerBook 1400.
With my current setup the Beige does not "see" the 1400 harddrive.
The 1400 is able to "see" all drives on the Beige.
Filesharing works only in one direction for file sharing.
I am able to move files from the Beige to the 1400.
Since the Beige drives are mounted on the 1400 desktop I can transfer files by putting anything I want into a Beige hard drive. To move a file from the 1400 to the Beige I first have to put it into one of the Beige hard drives.
The internet and e-mail works fine for both computers.
A Beige G3 running OS9.2.2 at 500MHz connected by Ethernet to a D-Link wireless router (DI-714).
There is a D-Link cable modem (DCM-200) connected to the router.
A PowerBook 1400 G3 running OS8.6 at 333MHz with an Avaya wireless PCMCIA network card is wirelessly connected to the router.
The Beige G3 is wire connected to the router via Ethernet.
The router address is 192.168.0.1.
IP addresses are: 192.168.0.100 for the Beige and 192.168.0.101 for the 1400.
Network software for the PowerBook is Orinoco 7.2.
File Sharing: Beige-9.0.2, 1400-8.0
Users and Groups: Beige-n/a, 1400-8.0
AppleShare: Beige-3.9.2, 1400-3.8.3
File Sharing Extension: Beige-7.6.7, 1400-7.6.2
File Sharing Library: Beige-9.0.2, 1400-8.0.1
File Sharing is turned on on both computers.
Program linking is off on both computers.
All drives on both computers are shared. Assigned all privileges, too.
Network Identity: Owner name and password is the same on both computers. Computer names are different. IP address is 192.168.0.100 on the Beige and is 192.168.0.101 0n the 1400.
Users and Groups setup is the same for both computers.
TCP/IP is connected via the Orinoco (the PCMCIA wireless network card) on the 1400 and via the ethernet on the beige. Both are set to use the DHCP server and the router address is the same, 192.168.0.1
AppleTalk is set to Orinoco (the PCMCIA wireless network card) on the 1400 and to the Printer Port on the Beige.
If I could figure out how to put screenshots in this reply, the above might be a little clearer.
Can some Mac networking expert please tell me what I am missing. I mean besides my mind and brain for even trying something like this with these older Macs. I just love to get as much performance out of them as I can.
