    hey all.
    i am wanting to send and get files with another macbook pro. we are both sat in the same room both running 10.5 and connected to the same wireless router ( netgear ).

    The person connecting must have an account on the computer they are connecting to, otherwise they must use Go->Connect to Server to be able to enter another username an password.
