    Unhappy File Sharing w/ Firewall
    I'm running 10.5.2 on a MacBook. My wife is running 10.5.2 on her iMac. We are both on our home network. I turned on File Sharing four days ago and we were both able to access each other's "Public" folder. However, now that I've turned on the Apple Firewall (set on "Set services for specific services and applications") she gets an error saying "Connection Failed". However, I can still access her public folder. I cannot seem to find a setting to allow her access to my public folder. Any ideas?

    Do you have Finder set as an allowed service / application?
