I have two G4s running 10.3.2 networked by ethernet and a Netgear router. One mac has an external firewire hard drive that I want to share with the other.

I have sharing turned on each machine. I can see each Mac from the other but cannot see the external HD.

I've tried using SharePoints but was unsuccessful.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

If the login you are using for File Sharing is an admin account, all mounted volumes will appear for that user.

As the admin of the "host" computer with the firewire HD I have no problems with accessing the external HD. But the second Mac on the LAN, even when I use it to log on to the "host" with my name and password, will not show the external HD.
'Tis a puzzlement.
