Does anybody know such software?. We use Farallons phone net to mount max
volumes on our windows machine, but that does not convert the files unless
you do an explicit copy and even that only works under dos and not under
windows. This is quite a pain since, normally I develop something on the
mac, convert the file to the windows machine, load it into ACL/PC, discover
some bugs, correct them convert it back and so on in an endless cycle. I
really would love to use the same physical files in a network.
