Hi, Everyone...

I have three Macs on my home network: A PowerBook G4, an Intel-iMac, and an Intel-MacMini.

The three are on one network. I can connect from PowerBook to the other two using GUEST, the other two can connect to one another using GUEST, but the iMac and MacMini cannot connect to the PowerBook using GUEST; when I try that, I get an empty window with no volumes list to mount.

I have matched the Sharing and Firewall settings on all three Macs, but I still end up with the same result.

Please note that I can connect to the PowerBook if I used my account and not GUEST.

Any thoughts?

I know this kind of a lame question, but are you sure the Guest account is activated on all the Macs?

You're not likely to get any from him.

Yea, on both macs I have turned off the firewall and my file sharing is on with the right permissions...And in the "Accounts Preferences Pane" I have already activated the option "Allow guests to connect to shared folders"...
I can't understand what's going on man it is driving me nuts really...
Both macs running 10.6.2(I updated them today from 10.6.1)
I had the same problem when both macs was on 10.6.1...
Nothing different in 10.6.2...

Any helpful answers would be much really appreciated!
QUOTE Thanks
