Chapter 12. Networking > File Sharing

12.2. File Sharing

When you're done wiring (or not wiring, as the case may be), your network is ready. Your Mac should "see" any Ethernet or shared USB printers, in readiness to print (see Chapter 13). You can now play network games or use a network calendar. And you can now turn on File Sharing, one of the most useful features of the Mac OS.

In File Sharing, you can summon the icon for a folder or disk attached to another computer on the network, whether it's a Mac or a Windows PC. It shows up in a Finder window, as shown in Figure 12-3. At this point, you can drag files back and forth, exactly as though the other computer's folder or disk is a hard drive connected to your own machine.
