Hi;

Had anybody use a stand alone network drive before that worked for a OSX and XP mixed network? I tried Ximeta's NetDrive. But I can only get it work as a read/write drive for one computer and the rest all are read only. It was supposed to be able to support R/W for all the computer on the network. But I have no luck. I was wandering if any of you have got the Ximeta one, or any other one to work as R/W for all the unit connected.

Thanks

SCP? what is it and never saw

SCP? what is it and never saw it mentioned anywhere with their software or what they try to pass as a manual.

They only have 2 modes, one mix window version and mac mode with slower speed but supposedly support multi-connection read/write and NT/XP only mode that is faster but only support one write and multi-Read connections. I picked the slower multi-read/write mode, but I still only can get one of the connection to have read/write access. The first to connect always have r/w and the rest just read only.

SCP is the Secure CoPy protoc

SCP is the Secure CoPy protocol. It tunnels through SSH and is well supported on most PC's and is very easy to use. MacOSX has has it built in. It's very similar to SFTP which also tunnels through SSH.
