Panther and the forgetful Personal File Sharing - Mac Networking

    Default Panther and the forgetful Personal File Sharing

    I've got four machines that are running Panther with the same problem.
    Three are PowerBooks and one is a Tower. The all work well with one
    exception. The setting for Personal File Sharing in the File Sharing
    system preference doesn't stick. I'll turn it on then do a restart and
    poof, it's off.

    Two of the machines are brand new and very clean (little or no third
    party stuff). The other two had OS X recently installed and are
    likewise clean.

    I can vaguely recall hearing something about this but of course that's
    about all I can recall about it, hearing of it. File Sharing works fine
    and it starts up manually okay following a restart but that's not good.

    All four are on either on a wireless or wired connection to a router
    (they are on two distinct networks). I've set this up on OS X.2 with no
    problems.

    Does anyone know about this?

    TIA

    The above URL breaks with wrapping, so it's hard to tell if I found the
    specific article you refer to; although I suspect so; same author and
    subject.

    Is this it?
     

    There are some who read offline, and sometimes articles in other NG
    disappear, so a direct quote is sometimes superior to a link.

    yes that was the one.
     

    I guess I have mixed feelings about that...but my ridiculously long URL
    was probably not the right way to reply...especially since the quote was
    short.

    All you need to specify is the messageid:
