Hi all,

Powerbook 17" hires G4 and G5 2Ghz Mac OS 4.11 on both.

File sharing allowed on both, but when we try to connect via Finder
Cmmnd + k to the other mac we cannot connect as a registered user we
always get connection failed.

The user presented each time is what we expect - that is the user we
are running as in the calling mac.
The password is assumed to be our respective user password.

We have tried browsing to find the other mac rather than assuming the
presented name is correct but still no change.
We can connect as a guest but that does not give us the access we need.

From google search we have learned that we should be able to connect
with our normal user/password combination so has anyone had/solved
this problem?
Is there a way to tell the system that our passwords are good for
file sharing?

I vaguely remember something about using Netinfo Manager or Network
Utility for something similar to this years ago but cannot find or
recall the details!

Anyone?

Ged

The user name and password to be entered are the ones for the account on the remote Mac; by default OS X displays the local logged-on user's long name. What it sends to the remote Mac is the short name (which is the name of your home folder on the Mac. )
