Question Connect Mac G4 (OS X) and SGI O2 (IRIX) via Ethernet

Maybe someone could help me with the following:
I am trying to connect my Powerbook G4 with my SGI O2 (IRIX) or vice versa via Ethernet. The Apple Share Application from Xinet (for the SGI) allowed me to do so (from O2 to my former Mac (PB G3)).
I now can setup a ethernet connection also (the AppleShare File Server is recognized) but when it comes to enter user name and password (I enter my Mac admin user ID and PW) there is no validation.
Can anyone help to connect either way from/to SGI/Mac?

Thank you

Default some things to look into

I can probably help - but I would need some more information. You mentioned using xinet - which version of KA Share are you running on the O2? Also, you mentioned connecting to an AppleShare File server -- which server are you connecting to? AppleShare IP (old Apple server technology) or do you mean file sharing on a standard client (ie. enabling file sharing on OS X, for instance). I think you are probably running into an incompatibility with the versions of Appletalk that are being used. Or it could even be that AppleTalk is not on. OS X only does AFP over TCP/IP as opposed to the older AppleTalk protocol. Make sure your OS X client has Enable AppleTalk selected in the Sharing preference pane. If you have OS X on the Mac you have other options available for connecting to your SGI including NFS, and some easy to use command line tools, such as scp.

These just some things to try or think about. I would be glad to help you figure it out further.
