    Accessing PC from iMac
    Hello,

    On my home network I can see my files on my iMac from a PC but I can't see my files on a PC from my iMac. Does anyone know why.

    Sometimes this happens to me .... but I figure that seeing my PC files from my Mac means to me that it's not such a problem if I can't see my Mac files from my PC ... if that makes sense?

    I can still drag, delete, borrow between both computers etc - so it's all good ...

    In the Finder Menu,

    Go > Connect to Server

    Type,
    smb://<IP Address of your pc> (eg. smb://192.168.1.50) and hit Connect.
