    Hi

    I'm quite new to macintosh and that's probably why I can't figure this out.

    I am trying to get access to my mac mini through my rMBP, using screen sharing and I can't connect. I can access my rMBP through my mac mini using screen sharing, but not the other way around.

    When I'm System-->Sharing all settings are the same. I have OS X server installed on the mac mini. Even though I don't have a server on could there be a possibility that some of the settings on the server can influence and mess it up?

    When I first tried it a couple of days ago it did work, not anymore (have fiddled around some settings but have turned as many as I can remember back). I have ML on both macs.

    Any suggestions on what the problem can be would be most appreciated

    When you say you cannot connect, at what stage do you face problems? Are you able to see the MacMini on the network, but unable to request to share the screen? Are you able to request it but it times out? Does it not authenticate properly?

    Are you on a Belkin router?

    - I have the same problem. It is between my iMac and MBP. I can acces screen sharing on my MBP from my iMac, but not the other way around. I can acces the files both ways, but not screen sharing. Screen sharing is enabled and so is file sharing. All settings should be the same and i am using a time capsule. I can see the screen sharing button and when i push it, it tries to connect, but an error message appear, that it couldn´t connect and i should check the screen sharing settings and the connection.
    Do you have a solution?
