He's certainly been doing all the development on it these past few years! In praise of !ShareFS http://www.iconbar.co.uk/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12456&page=1#124192 There is a free ShareFS implementation for Unix. I think it works on Linux, but I don't know for sure if it works on Mac OS X. In praise of !ShareFS http://www.iconbar.co.uk/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12456&page=1#124191 I use ShareFS constantly to share between my RISC PC, Pi and VirtualArcs. In praise of !ShareFS http://www.iconbar.co.uk/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12456&page=1#124190 provided both machines have the same netmask, overlapping netmasks is not sufficient.

In praise of !ShareFS http://www.iconbar.co.uk/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12456&page=1#124187 If it works, ShareFS (aka Access) is ok'ish. The way the sharing works is easy, which is probably the only reason to actually use it. Having it available on most RISC OS machines out-of-the-box is a big plus. In praise of !ShareFS http://www.iconbar.co.uk/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12456&page=1#124186 I'm a recent buyer of CloudFS so I can share files via pCloud on RISC OS to my PC and Mac, it's been fantastic, totally transformed my RISC OS machine to something I can realistically use for real work. In praise of !ShareFS http://www.iconbar.co.uk/forums/viewthread.php?threadid=12456&page=1#124185 We are ShareFS a lot here. The only problem is writing to an older machine from a newer one e.g. a RiscPC from a RapidO Ig. Pulling the file to the RiscPC is one solution. We now find it more convenient to set the 'next' slot on the faster machine to about 250K which also makes it reliable.
