You will first have to have a consistent folder naming setup for both computers, so PPro may find the files
You will need to have the project and all files in one place on the server, and then copy everything to the appropriate computer for work... PPro does NOT work on a network, only on a local hard drive
So... edit on Mac, copy all to server... copy all to PC... render on PC... copy all back to server
Some reading about networks...

PC does work with Media Encoder, freeing up Mac for other tasks.
Well...not necessarily. The EULA does allow for Adobe software to be activated and used on two machines, but not at the same time. If you want to render on the PC while continuing to edit on the Mac, you would legally need two licenses.
Of course, there's no embargo against other tasks on the Mac, such as web surfing, email, etc. But then again, those activities should really not be done on your primary edit rig at all, even when not editing.
But... does ONE license serial number work to activate not just two computers, but one Mac and one PC?
I thought the Mac and PC versions could not be activated from the same serial number... or am I wrong, or was that changed for CS6?
Sorry, should have been more clear, I'm using a Creative Cloud subscription. Having no problems using the programs one at a time on the two machines.
Thanks for the response John, moving the files into identical paths manually works ok, once you manually locate one file it figures out the rest for you.
Based on the replied above I suppose what I'm looking for is wether PP can gather up all the files it has used and save it to another location as a neat package. If im really neat and have all sources in the right place before I start its relatively simple to move it all but i'm looking to see if there is a package option.
Its not a massive imposition to do it manually but all time saved is always appreciated, as im sure you all agree!
