    Hi all,

    I got an ethernet router with iBooks A, B and my G5 on it. They all see each other, but the G5 can only connect to iBook A and vice versa. When I click on the icon for iBook B, from within the Finder's Network window, I get this:

    "Connection Failed! The file server is running on your machine. Please access the files locally."

    I get the same message when trying to connect from iBook B. Any idea what I should try doing?

    Thanks in advance...
