IMac Can No Longer See MBP for File Sharing

Hello all,
I have had my iMac and MBP set up for ages to see one another and share files. Worked like a charm. Now, all of a sudden, the iMac can no longer see the MBP - but - the MBP CAN see the iMac and connect. Odd??
To my knowledge, nothing has been changed on my end. File Sharing is on. Firewall is off. Both units have the latest updates from Apple and the AEBS has the latest firmware and is working pefectly.
What can I do to troubleshoot this?
Thanks,
Stu

Thanks for the help!
Well, when I rebooted the MBP, it magically appeared on the iMac..so I thought all was well. However, I am now suspicious of the iMac as the culprit.
For example, I have a USB Disk connected to the AEBS - and the iMac is connected to it right now, showing the ddisk icon on the desktop. I can browse the contents.
However, when clicking on Network in the Finder, the AEBS does not appear at all! Even though I am connected to the disk. Why would this be?
I am not against trying your idea - but this new information might point us in another direction?

  • Windows user can no longer connect to my File Sharing IP address

    Hello,
    Since updating to OS X 10.4.9, Windows users can no longer connect to my file sharing IP address.
    I have had no problems when I was using 10.4.8, and I have re-checked both the Windows computer and my Mac to make sure that the file sharing connection should be possible.
    I think this may be some sort of firewall / security issue (?) in that the 10.4.9 update has downloaded something which now "hides" my Mac at this IP address. I am unsure how to resolve this problem.
    Does anyone have a suggestion? Much obliged, in advance.

    Can the Mac connect to the PC?
    Have you checked the Workgroup is the same on the Mac
    in Directory Access>CIS/SMB?
    Have you tried turning off the Firewall for a test?
    Has the IP changed?
    Hello!
    Thank you for the suggestive questions above. I haven't "tested" any of them because I simply became exasperated with the "change" in 10.4.9 and went back to system 10.4.8
    Of course, now everything is right with the world and I can once again have my Windows computer connect to my Mac.
    Thank you for taking the time in trying to help me -- much obliged.

    I am not an Outlook expert, but I would think this is a client problem. Things like local cache come to mind.
    What happens if you try from another Outlook client?

  • I can no longer see dvd or cd sharing option on Sharing folder

    After having installed DVD or CD sharing, I am no longer able to find "DVD or CD sharing" on Sharing folder. Thus, I can't click it - obviously - and cannot access remote CDs or DVDs either.
    Then, I tried to reinstall the software as Apple tell us to do, but I pops up a message "a newer version of DVD or CD sharing is already installed on your computer."
    So that, I'm stuck. I can neither erase the files nor reinstall it.
    Hope Apple could give us a hand.
    I'd appreciate if anybody knows something that might help.
    Thanks!

    Can no one help me with this issue?  I can see all videos in iTunes, but not through Home Sharing.
    Thanks

  • CS4 can no longer see mts files

    I can't be sure,  but it seems that after an update today that started when I opened Premiere Pro CS4,  my projects can no longer see any of the mts files ,  even in the media browser.   It can see other types of files,  just not mts.  This IS a full version (NOT trial)  of Premiere.  All was working for  the past week and a half since I first installed the Production Suite CS4.  Now I get the red "Media Offline"  screen on the source and program monitors.  Media Browser cannot see any of the mts files.  What has happened?  How can this be fixed.  The Adobe updater downloaded 9 updates when I opened Premiere,  but the download seemed to hang.  I chose to let it resume the update later when I hit cancel.  When I rebooted and brought up Premiere,  it finished the download and ran the install of the updates.  Seems as though the update may have messed up my FULL VERSION status somehow.  The important thing is that I can no longer see any mts files,  and the rendered file also produces the red media offline screen.

    Check your iPod's hard drive for errors. Open My Computer, right-click the drive, Click Properties, Tools, Check Now..., Select Options, Start.
    Some of your missing files/folders may be restored although their names may be lost. 4gb is the max. file size on FAT32 so are we talking a 42gb folder rather than a single file?

  • Upgraded to mountain lion, can no longer see D110 on WLAN

    I recently upgraded my iMac to Mountain Lion.  It is connected to my FiOS home router via Ethernet (wired).  I have a Photosmart D110 on my WLAN.  Prior to the upgrade, everything worked fine.  Since the upgrade, the iMac can no longer see the D110.
    If I put the iMac on the WLAN it sees the D110, but it can't see it when the D110 is on WiFi and the iMac is on wired Ethernet.  I'd like to keep the iMac on wired Ethernet, is there a fix?
    I did try deleting the printer, connecting it via USB, and re-adding it to see if it would install any software updates, but I'm still having the same issue.
    Thanks!

    fixed - found out I had to turn off IGMP Proxy in my FiOS home router.  Why, I don't know.

  • IMac G5 can no longer see Macbook on my network

    I have a home network on a wireless linksys router. I use an iMac G5 and MacBook. Both computers were working fine and could see one another. Now the iMac no longer sees the MacBook. It CAN see my Dell Laptop when it is on the network and connects fine. My MacBook sees the iMac no problem.
    Both computers have file sharing and web sharing on.
    I have tried logging on and off my accout to see if the finder on the iMac can see the macbook. Nothing changes.
    I have tried connecting the computers directly with an ethernet cable, nothing.
    Please help. I'm new to this

    Should work the same for Ethernet, Wireless, FW, what have you.
    That question has been asked more than a few times, I think answered too, but I can't remember for sure... messed up aliases, Passwords, Permissions, Files???
    My connection, or Apple's Forums are excruciatingly slow for me at moment or I'd try searching this Forum for the cure(s).
    Thanks

  • Imac and Macbook pro can no longer see one another

    I'm not sure why, but all since I upgraded to Yosemite, I can no longer see my iMac on my Macbook Pro and vice versa. I could always see the computer that I needed to connect to in finder, or I could connect with my iCloud password. As of today, I can no longer access my iMac from my Macbook Pro and that's a problem. If someone could provide directions (dumbed down version) explaining how to connect the computers from scratch, I would greatly appreciate it. I am fine with setting it up again but I can't recall how I did it.  Thanks so  much. I did upgrade both my iMac and MacBook pro to Yosemite over the weekend.

  • My safari menu bar is missing --the menu bar for desktop, HD, and apps appears, but when I click on Safari, it disappears, so I can no longer see my buttons for History, etc.  I think my husband (pc user) clicked it away.  Any ideas how to retrieve it?

    My safari menu bar is missing.  The menu bar for desktop, HD, and apps appears, but when I click on Safari, it disappears, so I can no longer see my buttons for History, etc.  I think my husband (pc user) clicked it away when borrowing my computer.  Any ideas how to retrieve it?  Thanks. 

    I too was having the same problem However, I could access both the menu bar and the dock by hovering my mouse over them so it wasn't a huge problem but I prefered having it there anyway. I was not in full screen mode and I could still go into full screen mode if I wanted to.  I found the easiest solution was to just quit safai and restart it, but it might not work for you considering you couldn't access you menu bar either way.
    I found this article that allows you to hide/show the menu bar and the dock through TextEdit (didn't work for me) http://www.mactricksandtips.com/2009/07/hide-the-menubar-or-dock-in-specific-app s.html It is pretty old so it might not work for lion and a bit risky if you don't know what you're doing so I wouldn't really recommend doing it this way.
    And KSheppard, I know it's not really any of my buisness, but the way to get answers to a question isn't by insulting others and being quick-tempered. Even if you feel like you were insulted first, don't try snapping at people who aren't obligated to help you. Honestly, it just makes everything easier if everybody is cooperative and polite.

    How do I move files from my iMac to my Airport without getting 'AirPort can not be modified' message. File sharing is enabled and I'm not getting asked for a password. Thanks

    What OS are you running.. this is usually only a problem in Mavericks.
    If so I recommend you mount the hard disk manually..
    Use Go, Connect to server.
    Type in the IP address if static.. eg
    AFP://10.0.1.1
    Or the name.. but you will have issues unless the name is short, no spaces and pure alphanumeric.. if you are using bad names.. fix it by a full factory reset in airport utility and give it all names that comply to the above.
    Type in
    AFP://TCname.local Where TCname is replaced with the actual name.
    You will be asked for the password the first time which is public unless you changed it.. please remember to save this in the keychain.
    Copy files then to a new directory you create on the TC.. do not place files inside the TM sparsebundle. Nor directly under the main directory.

  • Is there a way for my daughter or her friends to block their numbers from showing up on activities page. At first i could see them, as of yesterday i can no longer see the numbers in the activities page. But i do see that she has texted them when looking

    Is there a way for my daughter or her friends to block their numbers from showing up on activities page. At first i could see them, as of yesterday i can no longer see the numbers in the activities page. But i do see that she has texted them when looking at her phone.

    First of all, there is no need to put the entire text of your post into the title of your thread.
    Next, does your daughter have an iPhone? Do her friends have iPhones? If the answer to both questions is "yes", then it is possible she is not texting them, but using iMessage to communicate with them. iMessages will not show up in the texting traffic on a line as they are not texts, but messages sent thru Apple's servers.
    For all "texts" to show up in the texting activity of an iPhone, you must disable iMessage on the device. Any messages sent as iMessages(blue bubbles around the text) on an iPhone will not show up in any texting activity.

  • I can no longer edit information for streaming files in Get Info.

    I can no longer edit information for streaming files in Get Info.

    Similar problem here. My Ical refuses to edit or delete events. Viewing is possible, though sometimes the whole screen turns grey. Adding new events from mail is still possible. The task-pane completely disappeared. My local apple technic-centre messed about with disk utility for a bit and than told me to reinstall leopard. I could of course do that, but it seems to me that reinstalling Leopard just to fix iCal events is a bit invasive.
    I tried also tried removing everything, installing a new copy of iCal from the leopard-cd, software updates, all to no avail.
    At the moment I'm open to all suggestions that do not include a complete leopard reinstall.
