I'm new to Macs so how exactly did you do this? I have a MP with a connected USB drive for TM. I want to back up my MBA over the WIFI network to TM. I understand that you have to have the MP up and running but I'm unclear about setting up sharing as I don't want anyone other than the MBA to be able to connect to it.
Thanks in advance.
This is what I had to do.
1) Share the drive from the 'server' computer.
2) Connect to the sharing computer from the laptop
3) Open the shared drive
4) In the open drive window, drag the proxy icon in the title bar to the devices section of the sidebar.
5) Now, you should be able to select that drive as the Time Machine backup.
When it is time to backup, TM mounts the drive, backs up, and unmounts the drive.
