Per harisund, connected them via the hub, and voila: the machines could see each other. Thanks, everyone.

How to Connect Two Computers Together with an Ethernet Cable

Just curious -- a few people mentioned using hubs. Do you mean a literal hub, or do you mean a network switch? As far as I know, hubs are obsolete and haven't been manufactured in years. Asking for my own edification. Glad you got it. Sorry we may have led you astray with the crossover cable.

People are correct that these are no longer needed. Basically the cards are now smart enough to know what kind of cable is in there. The directions from Apple simply state that both machines need to be on the same network, so that's why it was going to work over wireless. It should work with either actually. You can create a local network using a hub, but yeah, for most people, whatever you buy these days will be a switch.

The transfer did finish in the time stated, and everything moved over smoothly. What was this late night cartoon? One end of the Ethernet cable has to be connected to the Mac and the other end needs to be connected to Windows PC. I will use Windows 8.

How to Connect Your PC & Mac Together Over an Ethernet Connection

I will use Ethernet for demonstration. It is Local Area Connection in your case. Right click on the LAN adapter and click on Properties. Select IPv4. And add a new IP Windows IP Configuration. I have figured out my dilemma. All has transferred well even the wave files I was concerned about. The files transferred much faster than just plugging the external disk into a USB Port. Thanks a million man. Another question: How do I transfer the files from Windows to the Mac.

Is there a list of instructions?

    I am glad your information is free and I did not have to set up an account. Thank you sir. Thanks Jackson. Thank you once again for all of this great advice and quickly responding. Are the 2 connected to the same network?

    If they are, then follow the steps in the article and you're golden. I apologize for my ignorance.

    No, a direct connection will not work in this instance. You either need to connect to a router or make your Windows PC connect to your Mac wirelessly through an adhoc connection. Thanks for all the help here. I am a new Mac Pro convert from Windows 7. Can I perform this process with the above procedure and or do you have another outline?

    bosol.com/screenshot/classic/3383.php Thanks in advance. What are "Wave files"? If you managed to set up the network as shown above, your computers will be linked and will appear in the network. If you have file sharing enabled in Windows, you will be able to transfer files over. I got a problem for once, i can access my laptop, it's got windows 7, but i can access my mac from my laptop. Any help? Hey, my System Preferences window doesn't have nearly as many options as yours, and so there is no "sharing".

    The closest I've got is "Network". Very helpful post. Worked perfectly for me. I followed your instructions with my Mac with OS Not much of a computer geek here - this sharing of files doesn't go beyond the computers on my home wireless network, right? My wireless network is secure. How can I share the mac files if the windows OS is installed in the sample laptop. The scenario is I have a mac pro book and I have installed both the mac and windows OS in that.

    I guess you forgot to mention one important step that is "Select the user account checkbox to On state" after selecting Share files and folders with SMB before clicking Done. I'm not able to login until this checkbox is selected. Also is it possible to use Sharing Only account to access a folder from windows?
