Ok, I got as far as where I can see my PC on my Mac & access the PC's Folders & files from my Mac. But for some strange reason I can't get my PC to see my Mac. Every time I try putting in the ip address of my Mac in my Network Places on the PC, it does not work. I've googled it & followed instruction carefully. Anyone have a simple Link or Suggestion? Thanks in advance.

Actually it was kind of tricky. I put in my Mac ip address & Windows kept saying It was wrong address or something like that. But then when I clicked on Browse Folders, I found what looked like my Mac Mini. It was there already. Thanks.

another thing to pay attention to is that when you turn on file sharing make sure you click options and enable smb sharing
