    I have a desktop Mac running Leopard and a laptop running Tiger. I would like to connect them so I can transfer files between the two of them with a minimum of hassle. What ways are there to do this?

    Circumventing the multi-verse...
    It would help to know what else you have going on, and how you want it setup. Is the desktop connected via ethernet? I assume the laptop is wireless, but either way more info is needed to properly answer or help :)

    (Oh btw, this site has some pretty fantastic guides, this is a good start if you would like to thumb around for info )

    Personal File Sharing: ON

    on leopard a new tab called sharing will appear in your finder window, and its pretty self explanatory form there

    Both computers are connected wirelessly to the same router. I found that once I enabled File Sharing I could access the laptop from the desktop, but not vice versa.

    macs not sharing nicely

    I'm having the same issue; I can get to the shared files on my wife's PowerBook, but she can't get to the shared files on my iMac.
