    I'm new here and I got a problem with my Mac. I tried to enable file sharing but I'm not able to connect via my mac's network IP from my PC.
    Any help?

    1.) Make sure your Mac/Windows machines are in the same workgroup (by default, 'WORKGROUP')
    2.) Check any firewalls to ensure the proper connections are allowed
    3.) Attempt to ping your Mac from the PC to see if you can get a ICMP response
    4.) After making sure the workgroups match, try to ping your Mac by its hostname

    There are many variables involved. However, those are the first things I would check.

    Thanks for the help mate. It was the problem of my firewall settings.
