i was wondering if i can set up folder sharing similar to Windows XP where you choose which folders you share and also make it so the other computer (Windows XP machine) doesn't have to enter a password ?

As far as sharing between XP and tiger goes, I have succesfully done the following:

Shared a folder in XP and accessed it through tiger.

Shared my home dir in tiger and accessed it (using my password) in XP after enabling windows sharing.

I don't know enough about OSX sharing to know if you can set up individual folder shares like this... others may know. I would also like to know come to think of it, it would be handy at times....

I suspect this might be what you're after: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?sto...011108161839416 (http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20011108161839416)


EDIT: Doesn't work with Tiger, and probably Panther too... I'll see if I can find something else.

EDIT 2: Here it is: http://www.hornware.com/sharepoints/
