have the OS 9 machine connect to the new iMac.
The problem could be the difference in the versions of AppleShare.
I have been running a G4 with os 10.4 connecting to a shared folder on a machine running os 9 for several years now. My G4 crapped out this week and I purchased a new 24" imac with 10.5. Problem is when I go to connect to server and hit browse, my os 9 machine doesn't show up on the imac. It has always shown up fine on 10.4. I've enable appletalk in the network preferences, have tried just typing the IP address in the connect window, have tried typing the computer name in the address field. None of this has worked and I'm completely unable to connect to the OS 9 machine.
Can anyone help, please?
