Hi all

I'm after a free (or cheap) Windows SMB file server to run on OS9 or alternatively a free (or cheap) AFP client to run on Windows.

Any specific suggestions?

The other option would be some software to run on Windows that access remote files via ftp but make the connection appear like a normal network drive. I vaguely recall seing this mentioned somewhere but cannot remember where ...

Thanks for any help.

    Hi. Try this link:

    I think the cheaper way to share files is Wormhole. You can't print directly, but I think you can send a printer file which in turn can be send to the printer.

    I'm now trying to find out if I can print from my xp, though the router, to a usb printer connected to the iMac 9.2.2. If you have any hint...
