    File sharing was working perfectly for some time. Recently my MacBook started appearing as MacBook-0023DF7DAB48 on both the iMac and MacBook(in the finder). I can't access it now, it just shows "loading" and then "connection failed". What's up with that?

    Check :apple: -> System Preferences -> Sharing -> Computer name, and change it back to the old name if necessary.

    Wow, thanks! That was way too easy. I had to re-enter my password in order to reconnect.
