    hello, all!
    I've installed a new SSD system drive - - two partitions; 10.9 & 10.8.5 - - on my MacPro. Cloned these partitions from the old 2-partition sys drive. I can sucessfully boot from either.

    In that past, I have never had a problem with "Go Network"-connecting this MacPro to my MacBookPro across the studio via ethernet & modem/router. Now, if I boot in 10.8.5, I can still connect to the MBPro as usual, but if I boot in 10.9, I can *see* the MBPro, but I either get a "Guest" connection or (more often) "connection failed".

    Any thoughts?

    thanks

    I know it's ridiculous, but I seem to recall thrashing around with a similar issue until I restarted my router. There's also a network prefs file somewhere that I trashed. Essentially I forced the "new" system to reconnect on its own rather than using the cloned/moved/migrated settings.
