I believe that the IP address is not relevant to ShareFS. If the disc

will create a ShareFS share, with the same name as the disc.

This doesn't work with HostFS because there is no iconbar Menu. In this
case, you need an obey file, ShareFS_setup, in boot Tasks, containing
something like

   ShareFSWindow 1 { > null: }
   ShareFSIcon aaa
   Share HostFS:$ bbb

where aaa is the name of a remote disc displayed on the local iconbar,
and bbb is the name allocated to the HostFS share, to be displayed on a
remote iconbar. The first line ensures ShareFS transfer reliability.
