    Well im trying to get some stuff off my windows pc. The problem is my imac wont show the computers on the same network. When i try this on my other imac it shows and i log in through it, is there any settings im not doing or i accidently changed that caused this problem?

    You'll need to tell us the configurations of your computers in order for us to diagnose the issue. For instance what type of settings you have set for sharing, the OS types, what you've tried so far, etc.

    Do you have file sharing enabled on the other computers? Does either computer have a firewall blocking connections?

    Have you got TCP/IP set up correctly on the other computers?

    Can you ping the other computers?
