I have an iMac running 10.5 and a Mac Mini running 10.4. I can file share fine from the iMac to the Mini but when I try to do the reverse (Mini to the iMac) I cannot get a connection. When I select GO> Network >iMac, the "connecting..." dialogue box shows but it spins forever with the message "looking for server". It doesn't mount. Not sure what the deal is. It worked fine when both machines were running 10.4. I've looked for new settings in 10.5 that maybe needed to be switched/activated but haven't found anything?

Any thoughts?

Do you have file sharing on the iMac turned on? This would be in System Preferences -> Sharing -> File Sharing. You also need to enable the account and make sure that AFP is checked. You can do this by clicking the options button, checking AFP and the user account that you want to share.

Yeah, forgot to mention it's already setup the way you described.

Is it the firewall ?

System Preferences -> Security -> Firewall

No. I just checked the Firewall pane and it lists AFP and SMB under file sharing. Which apparently is automatically enabled in the firewall when you choose it as a sharing preference.

I did recently add an airport Extreme to my setup (replaced a Linksys wrt-54g) could it be blocking the connection somehow?
