dansguardian: Judging from figure 9, no, it doesn't add ',fff' like another networking app does. It performs filetyping correctly, as far as I'm aware - it was Paul and Peter who worked on the article, so I haven't had a chance to play with Sunfish in detail.

I personally have all my music and source code on the RiscPC, and this runs !smbserver so that the Linux PC can access the files. I'm told I'm slightly mad for doing it this way round, so I may get a larger hdd for the Linux PC, and use Sunfish on the RPC to get at the files on it.

andrew (md0u80c9): You're in luck as sharing a connection is fairly painless with RISC OS and a recent version of Windows, if you know where to look. I've shared dial up and broadband with RISC OS and Windows XP (Home) before (XP acting as the gateway), so I'll see if another howto can be written.

I'll google first to see if an existing guide already exists, though, as I recall seeing one recently.

Chris. Just me.
