Linking PC, Amiga and Mac.

i'd like to get my WinXP PC, iBook and A1200 to be able to transfer files betweem each other and share a internet connection.
Amiga has a wireless PCMCIA nic, iBook wireless adapter built in and PC ordinary 100mbit adapter.
I'm gonna move soon and i don't know yet, if there is a DSL or a cable connection (if that makes a difference). What additional hardware should i get to complete that task?

I'm not a great expert @ such things, but have recently got my various PC's + 'Amiga' happily networking - mixture of wireless + cable connections.

For what it's worth I'd recommend hooking them all together with a Firewall Router. ( Netgear DG384G )
+ Makes connecting the 'putes child's play.
+ No messing with setting up internet connection sharing.
+ You get a proper firewall.
+ Lots more.....
- More money.
You will need to buy depending on your future connection type.

The worst part is getting the Amiga TCP stack + SAMBA + SMBFS setup...

The greatest benefit of this particular setup is that all your questions will hopefully have been answered in this thread:
....as I've probably already asked most of them

hey...the amiga can talk to your xp very easily with

this would be the easiest way in my opinion to transfer..use the xp box as a sort of share folder for the ibook and amiga

of course you could also set up an ftp server on the mac...

but yea

After much painful fiddling with SAMBA, and even SMB on a normal Windows network, my solution is just to set up FTP servers on the Amiga, Mac and Windows, and share files that way.

The Mac has one built-in (enabled using the "Sharing" menu in the System Preferences app if you've got Tiger), Filezilla (from Sourceforge) is a pretty good open-source FTP server for Windows, and rc-ftpd from the Aminet will probably do as an Amiga server (can't remember what I'm running).
