    I'm not sure if this is entirely Leopard related or not, but
    I have an Imac and a macbook (both running Leopard at the mo)..

    They are always connected via my wireless router.

    The macbook can see the iMac on the network no problem and appears in the finder no problem too..

    The problem I am having is that the iMac cannot see the macbook - or maybe it can, but it doesn't appear in the finder window automatically.

    The iMac is connected to the router via ethernet cable, with airport off, while the macbook is connects to the network via its airport.

    I have tried turning the airport on on the iMac to see if that made a difference, but it didn't.

    Both iMac and macbook have file sharing enabled too.

    Can anyone offer me any advice?

    Thank you

    Look in the airport setup and make sure the DHCP area shows the IPV6 address.

    If it doesn't restart your Router/AEBS then go into the system preferences under advanced>TCP/IP and the IPV6 should be there now and you should see the other computer.
    you must do this on any Mac that doesn't show an IPV6 address.
