    so i've set up my iMac to let the MacBook receive files over my network. however, the finder on my MacBook displays 2 computers found:

    1. a PC with the same IP address as my iMac
    2. my iMac

    i'm using my iMac's AirPort to share the internet connection throughout my apartment (since i don't have a wireless router), but why does the PC show up?

    You have some kind of Windows sharing enabled as well.

    Someone is using your Mac's connection for their internet. You have to disable something but i don't know what.

    under Sharing on my iMac, i have selected:

    1. Screen Sharing
    2. Fire Sharing
    3. Printer Sharing
    4. Internet Sharing

    seems like it's my printer. when i have Printer Sharing selected, i can connect to this server as a guest, but when i deselect the Printer Sharing on my iMac, connection to the "PC" fails.

    is there a way to remove this "PC" from the Finder?
