    In leopard one of the nice features ive noticed is the direct access/connection with other Macs/PCs on your network.

    Im currently using a PowerMac G5 with 10.5.2; wired to my AEBSn and I also have two other Macs on my network; MacBookPro 2.2 (wireless) running 10.4.10, and a MacPro 2.66 (wireless) running 10.4.10 and XP Pro SP2.

    Using Leopard on the G5 I can see the MBP in the shared list and can access it.
    however i'am unable to see the MacPro when its using XP or OSX.4.10

    i really havent actually done anything to the MBP nor the Macpro for it to work, anything im over looking?

    For the Mac's, goto your System Preferences, and goto Sharing, and turn on File sharing. For sharing on a windows machine, you have to turn on SMB sharing. Although, just reading your post again, you seem to have Bootcamp/VMWare?

    Failing that, get the IP address of each machine, and see if you can ping them. Also make sure there is no Firewall settings that might be blocking certain service ports.
