Put an ethernet cable between them, enable tcp/ip and file sharing on
one and log on from the other, seems to be what you are asking for? And
you do not need a cross-over cable between modern Macs.
For contact info, run the following in Terminal:

Correction: tcp/ipp of course needs to be enabled on the ethernet port
on _both_ machines. File sharing, however, is only necessary on one
(preferably the Mac OS X machine).

I want to set up a network where a Mac (OS 10.3) is connected to a USB
printer but where most of the clients are Windows XP machines. Can someone
either give me a simple step by step for configuring things, or point me to
a resource that has instructions? Thanks.

Yep -- it can be done but is a bit of a pain. Remember to tell the XP
machine that it's printing to an AppleLaserwriter so that CUPS can
properly translate the stream.
I spent more time finding a Gimp/CUPS Canon driver that got the WinXP
print file to look right on my Canon printer! :-( . (Nothing perfectly
matched my S530D)

I have a G4 that was the top of the line in 1998. It will die one of
these days. It's currently running OS 9.2.2. Someone else(who now lives
far away) installed the internal modem, SCSI for my scanner, and my

Does anyone know of a printer that has the following characteristics:
1. Has an Appletalk port that prints to Mac System 7.x; and
2. Has a USB or parallel port that prints to Windows XP; and
3. Is currently on the market?
If on the market means used and old, then maybe, but I don't think they ever
made printers with USB and with an Appletalk port. However, if you are
running system 7, you are going to be very limited as to what printers you
can use unless you find drivers. Make sure you do your research before

The PR suggests they've been clear that the OS X release will be
production quality .. though since it won't be a "volume" platform,
one may wonder about this in practise.

From what I've seen of screenshots, I believe OEM 10g is web-based
JSP, so this seems likely. But just my inference, no real info.
I use remote OEM from another box on my Powerbook for now (either
XWindows or Windows Remote Desktop). SQL Plus otherwise..

I can't figure out how to correctly set up a "Network Place"
on a Windows XP machine connected to a router that also has
Macs connected to it.
The router dynamically assigns ip#s to each machine
connected to it. I've succeeded in creating Network places
that use an ip address, e.g.
where ThisMac is the name of the account I had created on a
Mac named "ThisMac. But I don't want to use this method
because the ip#s are assigned dynamically.

Reading one of George Graves rants about how hard it is to use Windows
inspired me to make this post. We constantly see remarks about how

I'd like to go on record as saying I don't use any OS. I use
applications. I play games. Anything "easy" or "hard" about that is
a product of the application. An OS can't make a good application
out of a bad one. The OS is just the layer that schedules and alots
resources, and handles interprocess communications.
Any modern OS has drag and drop, and a consistant GUI, so don't even
bother singing those tired old songs.

I am trying to set up a home network with a Mac G4 powerbook running OS
10.3.4 Panther with a Windows desktop running Windows XP Pro. They are
connected via an ADL router and sharing an internet connection. When I tried
to do this with Panther, I had no luck, but now I can:
1. share iTunes music without problem
2. ping the Windows machine from the Mac
3. see shared printers connected to the Windows machine (but the Windows
machine does NOT see Mac printers)
4. connect from the Mac to shared folders on the Windows machine
It is clear that the Mac is having no problem with the Windows computer
(well, one problem -- I can't print on shared windows printers, but at least
the Mac sees them).
However, I cannot get the Windows machine to see the Mac at all. Not the
printer, not on the network, nothing.
The firewall is off on both machines. I think it is still on on the router.
I recently upgraded from OS 10.2.8 to 10.3.4 if that makes a difference.
I did mess with CUPS quite a bit when trying to get the printers connected
with the older system. I assume the upgrade overwrote this, but may be not.
All I can see is that the Mac is blocking any incoming Windows traffic (with
the exception of iTunes). I do have Windows sharing and Printer sharing
...Are Mac OS X 10.5.8's iLife programs safe to use in Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x?
Someone told me that Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x do not come with iLife
like the older Mac OS X versions (e.g., 10.5.x). I did not know this!
Since my client uses iPhoto that came preinstalled on his old 2008
MacBook Pro's Mac OS X 10.5.x (10.5.8 right now), can he use the old one
from 10.5.8? Or will he need a third party replacement (needs to
import/copy the old image files) or buy a new iPhoto version for his
photo(graph)s? I recalled he did not like iPhoto and wonder if the new
one is any better.
Thank you in advance. :)

...Java JDK1.5 App on Mac OS X different look than on Windows XP
I have a Java application I have been developing and using for years
on Windows. I just recently started testing this application on a
brand new iMac with OS X 10.4.10 and Java SE 1.5.
The Mac version of the application looks different that the Windows
version. The JButtons on the toolbar are 2 different sizes on the Mac
and not Windows XP and JButtons in another toolbar have no borders on
the Mac but do on Windows XP.
Anyway, my question is:
Does anyone have any Java experience on the Mac and if so, are there
any documents that might explain differences in the Apple iMac version
of Java SE 1.5 vs the Sun Windows version Java SE 1.5?
Thanks in advance,

The Apple website has a ton of Mac OS X Java information.
As a general rule, use layout managers and don't hardcode sizes and
positions. Further, avoid messing with widget settings to overwrite
default behavior or default representations. This often breaks on
other platforms and PLAFs.

I would like to hear anyone's comments, opinions, "proof", etc. about
the relative merits and drawbacks of the specific OSs that run on
_modern_ Mac hardware and modern PC hardware. (any brand of PC
hardware, as long as it is modern)
If possible, I would prefer the discussion to be about two specific
OSs, the Windows XP (home edition), and the Apple OS X, the current OS
I probably have the wrong picture about the relative merits and
drawbacks. Let me put it in words, then possibly some here could
correct my assumptions, or even add new things I am not aware of.
The assumption here is that the "latest and greatest" general consumer
hardware is being used on both platforms.
In all cases below OS X is being compared against XP, home edition.
Merits of OS X - - -
1) Stronger inherent security of the OS X itself against viruses.
2) Easier for a newbie to learn, assuming newbie stays away
from OSX's command line. (Unix)
3) Better support for popular hardware drivers.
4) Fairly good support for Unix in the same OS X.
5) Better support for the "creative arts", i.e. desktop publishing,
creating movies, creating advertising, etc.
6) OS has better stability against crashing.
7) Important OS configuration features tend to be better located
in a central location, instead of being scattered all over.

Today I downloaded and installed "Security Update 2004-04-05" on my Mac (I'm
running Mac OS X 10.2.8). Out of curiosity I compared my recent Mac OS X
security update history to that of my Windows XP machine. Since December
2003, I've installed the following security/critical updates on each system:
*** Mac OS X ***
2003-12-08 "Security Update 2003-11-19" (1.0)
2003-12-08 "Security Update 2003-12-05" (1.0)
2004-01-14 "Security Update 2003-12-19" (1.0)
2004-02-03 "Security Update 2004-01-26" (1.0)
2004-03-08 "Security Update 2004-02-23" (1.0)
2004-04-09 "Security Update 2004-04-05" (1.0)
*** Windows XP ***
2003-12-11 Security Update for Windows XP (KB810217)
2004-01-14 Security Update for Microsoft Data Access Components (KB832483)
2004-02-03 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1
2004-02-10 Critical Update for Windows (KB833407)
2004-02-10 Security Update for Windows XP (KB828028)
So, since December 2003 I've installed six Mac OS X Security Updates vs five
Windows XP Security/Critical Updates. It doesn't look like either OS has a
security advantage over the other. If Macs were as popular as Windows, and
therefore were as large a target of attacks, there's little evidence that
Macs would be any less vulnerable than Windows. Macs are more "secure"
because nobody targets them, pure and simple. Security via obscurity. ;-)

I read here that if one buy a copy of Matlab for one platform, then they can
get a free copy of Matlab for another platform.
So if you have intel mac allready, you can order a free Matlab copy for the
other platform, and check it out.
