    File Sharing Between 9.0.4 and X

    Dude, TCP/IP sharing _IS_ Appleshare IP. There's a server product (that includes a lot of other stuff), but I don't think that's what he's talking about.

    What is NetInfoManager?

    It's the application you use to manage NetInfo...Geesh! ;) Remember that, under the hood, OS X & Rhapsody/OS X Server are basically NextStep-derived. If you don't remember NeXT, it was the company that Steve Jobs started after he left Apple. NetInfo was (and presumably is) a way to...
