Answer to "file sharing only works one way"Heres what I found: AppleShare simply didn’t work on my computer. I read somewhere that it may be because I had to install an app (Shareway IP) on OS 7.6 to allow me to use AppleShare via TCP/IP. Instead, I chose to go the FTP route. To do this I installed an FTP server onto an OSX laptop via terminal commands and connected both computers to an ethernet switch. Then I opened fetch on my OS 7.6 computer and under the hostname I put the OSX computer’s IP number. Under username and password I used the OSX’s user information. Then I simply dragged and dropped all the files I needed to be put onto the OSX computer! It definitely wasn’t as fun as trying to wrangle a bunch of old hardware but it was certainly simpler.
