Hi all, hopefully someone may know why we cannot connect our two macs?

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

You appear have the wrong ~User & password.

There are two options:

Either use the ~User & admin password for the called Mac from the calling Mac. This will give full access to the calling Mac as if the ~User is the actual administrator of the called Mac. This compromises the called Mac’s admin ~User name & password to the user of the calling Mac.

or

Open System Preference>Sharing and add the calling Mac ~User & password to the preferences along with which folders & files are allowed to be shared. This creates a new password that isn’t the admin password of either Mac admin ~User.

Think this is correct, but I could be wrong.

Thanks Kris, option one did it for us - don't know why I failed to
use the obvious user/password!
