Mac file sharing crippled?
Apple may have crippled Mac OS X's ability to share files to Mac OS 9 clients with its latest security patch, according to one MacNN reader. The Mac user who supports numerous clients across London, and claims that all of his clients are experiencing the same problem following Apple's latest security patch: When a Mac OS 9 clients tries to copy a file to an open Mac OS X file share, the fileshare disconnects and the Finder reports that the share unexpectedly closed down. The user, who still requires Mac OS 9 systems to run some older software such as Quark 4 and other DTP type applications, conducted a search to discover that another user is experiencing the same issue.
