I currently have a Windows 98 computer sharing an internet connection with a Mac, with OS X. I have been able to get them to play computer games together (using UDP, not really sure what that is). I have them hooked up to one modem, the PC using the USB, the Mac using the Ethernet. I know that they are able to both use it at the same time, because they were sending data back and forthing during the computer game. They do however, share the same I.P. address. I was wondering though, if they are able to play the game together, shouldn't they be able to send files back and forth? How would I go about transferring files from one to the other. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Smoolean.

If they are actually using the same IP address (which I highly doubt) you'll be in for some trouble. It may work for a bit, but will cause trouble.

You do understand that Mac's and PC's use a different file format and cannot tranfer data without some translation, correct? I'm not sure why you're asking as this is quite unusual and requires more work than the result is worth.
