I am running my test sites on my mac, but I would like be able to use my windows machine to also access this server and be able to write / read fiels form this server.

I can access my sites on my windows by using the IP address 192.168.1.???.

But I would like to be able to use my windows machine to also access the fiels and edit them.

Any ideas much appreciated.

Some details: Mac OSX SL file sharing set to on. Windows 7 (tried setting up network map using afp://192.... but nothing)

Both machines are connected to a local network, with several other machine (windows)

Windows speaks SMB for file sharing, not AFP. Try enabling SMB file sharing on the Mac. This guide will show you how, if you don't know already.
