Hi Guys, Im having a strange issue about File Sharing between my 2 MacPros. One has Mountain Lion & other has Lion OS.


Till Last week sharing was working fine & I could control either machine from other one, transfer files etc.


Suddenly since yesterday, whenever I open finder window & click on shared machine in order to connect it, this particular window freezes. Earlier I would get a user name & password window wherein I could enter them & I would get connected & machine would be shown as external disk.


I have done restarts, disk permissions repairs relaunching finder.


I have checked sharing preferances. All is same as earlier.


Kindly advise how can I fix this.


I am currently using Airdrop but its not convinient as I need to keep one finder window continuously open for that.



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Other Machine has OS X 10.8.2
