Hi,

I use an application called "SyncTwoFolders" to sync between my iMac & MacBookPro.
This has been working really well for my situation.

About a week ago I did what seemed a major update to Mac OSX.
Since then I've been unable to connect to the MacBookPro and get the following message:


All the applicable folders have full sharing enabled. The MacBook appears in the iMac tree but won't allow a connection.

Could someone please steer me toward regaining this connection?

Thanks,
Pete

Edit: I've checked the IP address as suggested but what do I do then?
QUOTE Thanks

"Assuming" you can open Finder and browse to the shared folder, with a 3rd party application, best bet is going to be contacting the developer of the application.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Thanks for the reply.

That message is from simply trying to connect to the MacBook in iMac's Finder.
At that point I haven't even started SyncTwoFolders.

It's like the MacBook is refusing to share even though shares are set as read-write.
QUOTE Thanks
