Make sure you enable sharing in your system prefs

You know what is weird, is that I re-formatted my drive a month ago, and hadn't set up a network. Beforehand, my girlfriends' PC and my computer were set up on a network.

Yesterday, she wanted to listen to some music on her computer, that I had on my computer. I remembered the "home sharing", and logged into my account from her computer, and it worked, no problems. I wonder why mine would work, and not the OP's. I haven't changed any settings on my computer, unless the router remembers the network...
