    Hi All,

    I am really struggling to sort this out so I need some help please.

    I have just migrated my mbp to my new mac mini (so that my mini will be a server)

    I am trying to change the location of the itunes library from my mbp to the same place on my mac mini.

    I have enabled files sharing on the mac mini, added the file i want to share etc.

    I can see the mac mini in the finder on my mbp but when i try to connect i can only connect as a guest (which can only see two fooders media & movies??)

    If i hit the connect as... the prompt askes for a server password which I assume is my name and the user log on password but this doesnt work???

    Is the issue the fact that both systems are logged in using the same user name??

    I have tried logging in as a guest on the mbp but still cannot see the shared itunes folder even though i have shared folder option checked under user groups.

    I should mention that i can control the mac mini from my macbook pro via screen sharing so it is connecting
