    My flatmate and i both have macbook pro's, we use our computers to watch movies and listen to music in the lounge. Is there any way to allow one computer to access movies of off the other one through the airport? The reason i want to do this is so we can hook up all the hard drives to the mac on the one room and have the one in the lounge clutter free.

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Hi,
    just go to Preferences>Sharing and enable file sharing. You can choose there which directories will be shared. By default it's the Public directory.

    Note that anybody who is connected on your Airport wlan will have access to the shared folders.
