transferring files from PC to Powerbook? HELP!
Hi everyone,

I have a Powerbook G4 and an IBM PC Pentium 4. I want to transfer a file from my PC, but it is over 4 GB and I don't have an external hard drive that my Mac can read. I have been told that I can set up my Network Preferences on both machines and transfer the file by connecting a firewire or ethernet cable between both computers.

I followed the instructions at this website:

... but I have not been able to make it work. I start up, WS-FTP Pro on my PC, type in "", followed by the username for my Mac, but it always says "Connect Failure."

Any idea what I'm doing wrong here? :mad:

You can download Win RAR on your Windows computer and divide the 4GB file into smaller 700MB files which you can then put on a cd, put it in you Mac OSX and then put the files back together with WinRAR for Mac OSX.
