    I'm hoping someone could help with my strange Leopard problem.

    I've got a MacBook and my girlfriend has a MacBook Pro, both of these have Leopard installed. We have enabled File Sharing in System Preferences and the computers appear under Shared in Finder side bar as they should.

    When I click on my girlfriend's Mac I get connected instantly and can browse her shared folders. When my girlfriend clicks on my Mac, the "connecting" message comes up and nothing happens for a long while. Then she gets an error message saying that the connection can't be done. Reboots and such solutions don't solve problem.

    Has anyone had any similiar experiences or even an idea why this might be?

    Check your firewall and what folders you have sharing .
