Yes you go to the connection sharing settings and turn off password protected sharing :wink:

Ok, that was slick. On new PC I now see MacsToshiba. Click on that and I see 'Users' abs SharedDocs'. Opened both -- not enough. Back to laptop. Clciked on MacsToshiba and the My Documents. Up at the top "share with' - pull down menu - clicked on HomeGroup Read/Write. Back to new PC -- no change. Back to laptop. Pull down menu still shows lock rather than what I clicked on.

Suggestion?

Try not using the home group. I always turn it off.

I read the tutorial but it just showed how to turn off password protection which I had already done. The problem is that I can't access all the files on MacsToshiba from the new PC. I see 'SharedDocs' and 'Users' but thats all. I need access to Macs Documents and can't seem to get there. I tried logging into new PC as Mac but that didn't change anything. I tried changing the encrytion to the smaller number - no change. On new PC - in the wizard for home office setup it had MSHOME and I changed that to Homegoup but if i run the wizard again it still shows MSHOME. I'm guessint they (new PC and MacsToshiba) need to be the same.

Normally the only thing that is comes down to is the credentials. As a test, make a new user account on the new PC and make it the same username and password as the one on the laptop.

Then see if it works. If it does then I know what we need to change. If it doesnt work when the user and pass are the same on both machines then we have something else going on :wink:
