Take Control of
Sharing Files in Leopard

Glenn Fleishman

No Mac is an island, and networking guru Glenn Fleishman has the nitty-gritty details you need to set up and configure file sharing in Leopard to be fast, effective, and secure. Whether AFP, Samba, FTP, or iDisk, between two Macs, among a mixed-platform workgroup, or over the Internet, Glenn explains it all.

This product has been discontinued.

Even if you are using Leopard, you should instead buy Take Control of Sharing Files in Snow Leopard. This Leopard book was great when it was released, covering all the latest Leopard details with a 2007 outlook. 2007 was about a century ago in Internet years, so when we created the Snow Leopard edition in 2009, we created it with an eye to including Leopard users. The changes in Mac OS X between Leopard and Snow Leopard are not that large, but the changes in the world overall make the Leopard ebook somewhat obsolete.
