Hi, I'm trying to allow my brother to chuck items into my drop box on the same home wireless network. His icon appears on my list of shared in a finder window and I was able to drop into his drop box no problem as a guest. but when he tries to access mine as guest it comes back as connection failed.

This is odd as file sharing is on and guest account can access shared folders as default. This led me to believe that it is due to filevault as shared folder is in my home. Mac help says, "Because your home folder is encrypted, some tasks that normally access your home folder may be prevented. [for example] If you’re not logged in to your computer, other users won’t have access to shared folders in your home folder".

But I'm logged in and it still doesn't work!!

Thanks for your help in advance.
