I'm new to SharePoints, and I'm not at all savvy about networking. I have a LaCie USB hard drive connected to a desktop mac, and I would like to access the files on this drive from my MacBook. Both computers are using OSX 10.4.10.

I've installed SharePoints on both computers.

On the desktop (to which the hard drive is connected), I have followed the instructions in the documentation to find and share the drive. The user path is /volumes/JUKEBOX (jukebox is the name of the hard drive I'm trying to share).

When I go to my MacBook and try to find something called "volumes" on the desktop, I don't see anything. Should a folder called "volumes" be appearing somewhere?

The long and short is: how do I get to the hard drive on my desktop from my macbook using SharePoints?

Did you enable filesharing on the desktop?

When you do you will find the address that it is broadcasting.

I think I've enabled filesharing on the desktop. At least I can share other files from the desktop. But the volume for the external hard drive won't show up either as an icon when I connect to the desktop's network.

Yes, I still can't use SharePoints to share the external attached to my desktop. Does anyone know if there are some *very* explicit, step-bystep instructions on how to do this on the SharePoints site or in the HornWare forums anywhere?
