I have a dedicated gigabit ethernet card in each machine, and a direct connection between them (right now it is via a 'crossover' cable, but I have standard patch cables, too). I wish to share drives from both machines on the other machine. How would I go about setting this up? As an example, I wish to share the D: drive with my mac, and my external FW drive (connected to the mac) with the PC.
I'm really looking for step-by-step here... do I need to assign each computer an IP? How do I do this? I kinda figured it'd be a simple plug and play, but that doesn't seem to be working... any info is greatly appreciated.
