    I can screen share using my MBP, and I can connect to my iMac aswell. But when I open the finder on my iMac.. there's nothing, not even a SHARED tab?

    I've gone through my MBP and made sure everything was enabled. I've tried searching for relative subjects on here, but I can't understand why I can't access my MBP using my iMac?

    Please help..

    Open Finder menu > Preferences :)apple: + ,) > Sidebar pane, and check that 'Bonjour computers' is checked, if it's not they won't show up in the sidebar.

    Unless that's something you checked when you say 'everything is enabled', if you already checked that, I just wasted you time :p (sorry)

    well, now it's there.

    I went into pref's to make sure bonjur was enabled, noticed that I could see "shared" and then my MBP popped up. Sweet

    Thanks for your time,
    And sorry for wasting it.
