I have a Mac Mini from 2013 with OSX10.7.5 and a MBP from 2009 with OSX 10.6.8.

Both are connected with ethernet cables to the Airport extreme (2012) and both have silesharing enabled through afp.

The mac are not showing up on either one of the computers.

 

Is there some setting on the Airport extreme that dissallowed me from file sharing between computers?

Uptil one week ago I used to connect with wifi on my MBP and before this I was able to see the MBP in the finder under shared computers. The only difference is that I now connect with only ethernet cables.

 

please help me. Thank you


Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    I do not believe there is such a setting on the AirPort Extreme.

    The airport could not stop the connection..

     

    In finder set it up manually.. so go.. connect to server.

    And type in the address manually.

     

    AFP://Computername

     

    This should then ask for password if required and allow you to see shares.
