Using airport I can create a network and connect two mac laptops, but I can't figure how to access files on the other computer after I have them both connected and personal file sharing on on both of them. Can anyone help me or point me in a direction to a post that explains it? Thanks!

The part of the process that I usually forget is to add the Users in the right column on the Sharing window. You need to add the Users in for each machine, and specify their privileges.
