i'm stupid, and i don't know what i'm doing (orry). i have a g4 which i'm on now. i'm connected 24/7 via tcp/ip. how do i set up my g4 so i can access my files on the road from my ibook (using ehernet or dialup)?
any help greatly appreciated...
Your machine is going to need a static IP address. I would got to http://www.stepwise.com and follow the instructions for installing OpenSSH. Then you can access the command line of your Mac using one of the RSH applications. At the curent time, you can not access the Quartz interface. This may change. If you are looking to access the machine with a user interface, you will have to install XFree86 on your mac and boot to the console mode. XFree and Quartz can not operate at the same time. If you start X on the Mac, you can then use an XWindow manager on the remote machine.Originally posted by bolindilly

go to the Sharing panel in System Preferences.app
Click the checkbox called "Turn on FTP access" so it shows a check.
Then you can FTP to your computer.
