No Mac is an island when it comes to sharing files. In this detail-packed ebook, networking expert Glenn Fleishman makes file sharing easy, whether it's between two Macs on a local network, among a mixed-platform office workgroup, or between far-flung computers on the Internet. Learn how to set up Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger to share files with Macs, Windows, and Unix machines using AppleShare, Samba, FTP, the Web, and WebDAV. Glenn shows you how to avoid the risks of sharing files across the Internet, provides instructions for accessing shared files from common operating systems, and explains how to enhance Tiger's file sharing with SharePoints. Building on the three free updates that kept the Panther edition of this ebook up to date, this new release has been thoroughly revised for Tiger. Extra section - learn all the ways to share music and photos across a network with iTunes and iPhoto!
