I work remotely at home from a company-owned Mac which hooks into the company's Mac network. But the physical Internet connection (DSL) is actually through my own Windows XP computer. The Mac is being repaired (or actually, juiced up) at the moment, and I'm just curious for my own info, how to access the Mac network directly from this XP computer. The server has an address beginning with the letters afp. I just don't want to try messing around with it without some expert advice, for fear I'll mess up one of the existing connections I have with my own Internet and so on. Nothing crucial, nothing requiring an immediate answer, just curious.

If I understand you correctly, you want to share files between the 2? Do you use a router?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
