I purchased a MacBook Pro today and I'd like to use it with my iMac, which was purchased in December 2011. I have the Thunderbolt-to-Thunderbolt cable but nothing happens when I connect the two machines. I tried Command+F2 and nothing happened. I was going to use ScreenRecycler as recommeded by my Apple specialist but it seems that does not work on the latest OS. Both of my Macs are running 10.8.2.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
