    I have two computers in my WLAN:

    • Computer A is a MacBookPro with 10.8.
    • Computer B is a old iMac with 10.5.

    In both of them I have web sharing enabled and the firewalls disabled. I'm able to connect from A to B or from B to A using the IP Address trough safari (web sharing). If I try computer-name.local it doesn't work.

    I also downloaded Bonjour Broswer and I can see A and B from B, but I only can see A from A. Also for a weird reason I can see the computer name from B, but in A I can't see B for file sharing.

    Obviously the computer A is the problem. I also can see my computer A from my iPad and iPhone using the iTunes Home Sharing, but anytime I try to connect I get a empty list.

    I'm not sure, but something is blocking the dynamic hostname for my computer A. Is there a tool where can I check it? someone knows whats happening?

    As I notice, this happens on any device external like iPhone or iPad. I'm can't connect from those device to my MacBook Pro.
