So I upgraded my Macbook Pro, and Mac Mini to Mavericks today, and previously when they were both on mountain lion I could access the shared folders/files and screen share with absolutely no issue whatsoever.


But upon updating to Mavericks today it all broke.

Both computers were running the OS X Server software on Mountain Lion, and I went ahead and purchased/installed the new edition of server that came out today.


I can see the other mac under the "Shared" option in Finder's sidebar, but when I try to open the other mac it says connection failed and offers to "connect as"

As I usually do, I connect as and it asks for the login credentials. I put in the same credentials as before, 150% sure they're right, in the text boxes that I used before, but it won't allow me to connect to the mac.


I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they're the right credentials.

I thought it may have been just a wonky permissions error so I unshared the folders and reshared using the same permissions that had worked before.

I've been working on it for about 3 hours now so any help would be appreciated.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9)
