Heliode: Just thinking out loud: people have managed to install System Couldn't internet sharing be enabled from this? btw, not sure if you already are, but you should really try fseventer to gather information on what changes are made on the file system when you enable internet sharing.

Chasd: Since someone has been able to get Apache to run, why not enable WebDAV and use that ? You can enable WebDAV by uncommenting the config file line that loads the dav_module, and also the line that adds mod_dav.c. Then you need to set up Directives that create an alias and enable WebDAV, like this

Inside the

<IfModule mod_alias.c>

block, add this block, generally after the block of lines for CGI-

<IfModule mod_dav.c>
Alias /media "/mediadirectorypath/"

# Create a lock database file for this server at this path
DAVLockDB /Library/Webserver/DAVLock.ical
# Minimum life of a lock
DAVMinTimeout 600
<Directory /mediadirectorypath>
AllowOverride None
Options None
allow from all

Make sure the media directory is writable by the apache process. You may need to touch the lock file and set its permissions.

Restart apache, then use this URL in "Connect To Server"


You can also use Windows or Linux to access WebDAV volumes ( actually called collections ).

Uh, unless I'm really confused, WebDav is not at all the same thing as Internet Sharing. Internet Sharing would enable the Apple TV to share its Ethernet connection to wireless clients, or vice versa, as a bridge from wireless to Ethernet.
