Hack 117: Share Mac Files

Level Medium

Platform Mac OS X and Windows

Cost Free

Just as you can share folders from Windows, Mac OS X also has a built-in sharing feature that works with other Macs and PCs. Here’s how to share a folder from your Mac and access it from other computers in your home or on any local network.

Share a Folder

To make a folder available to other computers on the network, go to your Mac’s System Preferences’ Sharing pane. Here you see a list of all the ways other computers can access your Mac. Select File Sharing, and then click the + button under the Shared Folders column to add the folder you want to share, as shown in Figure 12-5.
