    I have a Macbook and a Macbook Pro both connected to the same wifi network. How can I grab a file off one onto the other?

    Thanks in advance.

    Turn on file sharing on both machines. You should then see the remote machines as resources in the sidebar.

    Go to System Preferences > Sharing and turn on File Sharing. You should be able to see the other Mac in the sidebar in Finder under sharing or you could click Command+K or click Go > Connect to server and type "afp://" followed by the IP address of the Mac you wish to connect to.

    Thanks. Using this I can connect from MB to MBP but not the other way around as it errors 'connection failed' yet the IP is correct?!? :confused:
