RB version of LapLink
Date: 04.02.06 11:15 (Sat, 4 Feb 2006 10:15:51 +0000)
From: Douglas Neale
Ever since my Mac upgraded itself to 10.4.4, my Windows XP box has
refused to connect to it. They can both see the internet via the ADSL
router which acts as a DHCP server in issuing IP addresses within the
same sub net range. Sharing is on, login names and passwords with full
admin privileges are set up, but it just refuses to connect.

I do have a W2K server which both machines can connect to, but I don't
want it on all the time as it's an old, noisy, slow, low storage
capacity box!

I wondered whether it would be possible to write a simple RB version of
the old Laplink program which would facilitate transferring files
between the two boxes. (I keep all backups on the PC, as the old
Titanium is just about full up, also all the mail handling is done on
the PC as it gives me a single searchable mail archive).

Has anyone done anything like this and would be willing to point me in
the right direction?

TIA
Douglas Neale

Try:

Thanks Steve,

There's quite a lot of very useful stuff from that link.

Just to report that Aaron's software does the job!

However:

RB2006r1 under OS 10.4.4 wouldn't open the project so I saved it from
the Windows version as an XML file and this loaded perfectly.

I'll play with the project to see if I can get it to imitate Laplink
more closely, purely as a learning experience. If I succeed I'll post
the result here.
Regards,
Douglas Neale

On the Mac (10.4.4), if you open the project file with 5.5 and add a comment
(anywhere), then save it, you'll be able to open it with 2006r1 and 2005r4.

Hi Michael,

Tried that, but got an error message "Unable to parse this XML file"

That made me think: if the fact that it wasn't compressed on Aaron's
website and I downloaded to a PC then transferred it to the Mac has
caused the problem!

So, I re-downloaded it straight to the Mac and as they say "et voila" it
can now be opened in RB2006r1.

I wonder if XML format would be the better way of cross-platform
compatibility, especially for downloading.

However, your tip is worth remembering.
