ive been playing around with sharing my public folder via sharing in the system preferences.

ive been trying to access my macbooks public folder from my mac mini. i go to the network in finder select my macbooks name and click connect.

dialogue box comes up and will only let me access as a registered user.
ive typed in admin password, my password for mac mini and macbook.

this error notice comes up:

"Connection Failed

Unknown user, incorrect password, or login is disabled. Please retype the name and password or contact the server's administrator"

what username and password do i use? why can i not log in as a guest?

hmmm....quite puzzling Confused
I know that you can only access the sharing folder of your macbook as a guest if you have activated a guest account on the macbook
Sorry I can't offer more help

Pull up the "Get Info" on your public folder and make sure it is not locked and that others have write (or whatever you choose) permission.
