Windows can talk to Mac machine ?

Windows can talk to Mac machine ?

Dear all :
   I want to use my Win2k's tape drive to backup Mac machine's data, but I can found only 1 Mac machine on my network and whereas I have totally 3 machines at all. I have setup the TCP/IP under these Mac machine and the one that I found can't login even I have typed with the correct password. Please advise what I can do next.


RE: Windows can talk to Mac machine ?

if you want to share one (old) mac with many windows boxes, I would get DAVE and use SMB on the Mac, rather than Appletalk.

If you had one PC and many (old) Macs, PC Mac LAN on the PC would teach it to use Appletalk, but I do not think that is your situation.


Modern macs running OSX have SAMBA built in, which solves many of these issues

I tried to remain child-like, all I acheived was childish.
