    Ok, this seems to be a really strange problem, and chances are I'm just doing something stupid. I have an iMac running Tiger, and a Macbook which I just upgraded to Leopard. When they were both running Tiger, I could use the Go menu on the Macbook to connect to the iMac and browse it's files no problem.
    Now, I can see the iMac from the Go menu, but every time I try to connect, it says "Connection Failed."
    Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong? I haven't changed any settings on the iMac since the install of Leopard, so I would assume security wise it should still just work.
    I know this is something simple guys, any help would be greatly appreciated. THanks.

    I have exactly the same issue. Ive tried connecting over my Airport network and using a direct ethernet connection and I cant connect in either direction. The only way ive made it work is using target disk mode, which is hopeless.
    Sorry I cant be of any help
