I used to be able to change some setting in the Sharing window in the desktop computer and make the name of my desktop computer  show up in a Finder window on my laptop.  I could  get files, even if I were three time zones away from my desk.


Now I don't see my desktop computer's name on my laptop. 


Is this a feature that is no longer available in the Mac OS?  I changed (downgraded???) to OS 10.8 a couple of months ago. Here's what my sharing screen looks like. See anything wrong here? Got any ideas?



I looked at LogMeIn, based on another thread here, but there are a lot of negative reviews mixed in the reviews.


Thanks, in advance, for your ideas,
