    Hi All,

    I have just receievd my new MacBook Pro today and I am trying to copy some stuff across the network from my old Mac to new but neither one can see the other. However I have another MacBook Pro in the house on the same network and I can see this one just fine.

    Any ideas on what could be the problem?

    Thank You for any assistance.

    Your File Sharing was probably turned off in System Preferences → Sharing

    It turned out the two MBP's had the same local network address name. Just changed my old MBP to something different and it worked immediately.
