I am trying to connect my MacBook to my IMac, for file sharing. My Imac can connect to my MacBook fine, and MacBook sees the IMac in Finder, It just will not connect. I keep getting a error

Connection Failed
The Server "....IMac" may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check server name or IP address, check you network connection, and try again.

I have checked and all file sharing is turned on for both computers.

macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    Go to the "Sharing" pane in System Preferences, click on file sharing, then find the AFP address (it would be something like this: afp:// Once you have found that, go into Finder, select "Connect to Server…" under "Go", then type in the address you found earlier. Does it work, and if not, what does the error message say?
