Simple Networking

The Macs you want to share files between must be networked together—you must have some sort of cable connecting them to each other or both to the same printer, or AirPort cards installed so they can connect to each other wirelessly. Networking a couple of Macs is a simple procedure.

There are entire books written on networking, and it can get very complex, so complex that people make a living being network specialists and in a large office there is usually a full-time network administrator. I am only going to explain the simplest method to get a couple of Macs talking to each other. We’ve got five Macs and a PC in this office, plus an iMac in the studio and a laptop in the library, plus three printers, all networked together, using a combination of DSL, Ethernet cables, and wireless AirPort. It is the coolest, most efficient way to get work done.
