file sharing between 2 macs

file sharing between 2 macs

file sharing between 2 macs

i turned my file sharing "on". and i am still not able to access my files from my other mac. both are on the network. and i have always been able to do this until recently when i deleted some plists.
what else needs to be done???

RE: file sharing between 2 macs

it lets me find it. and log in. and the world icon shows up but when i try to open it. says "server disconnect".

i can access the other mac from this machine but not this machine from the other mac.


RE: file sharing between 2 macs

What version of the OS are you running, 10.4, 10.5?
Can you choose connect as and enter a username and password?


Everything will be OK in the end.
If it's not OK, then it's not the end
