Can’t find shared files

Mac Format - - FEATURE -

If you tick File Shar­ing in Sys­tem Pref­er­ences’ Shar­ing pane, other Macs on the same net­work should show yours un­der Shared in the side­bar of Fin­der win­dows. By de­fault, they can only see the Pub­lic folder for each of your Mac’s user ac­counts, but you can add oth­ers in this pane.

If your Mac doesn’t show up, use Go > Con­nect to Server in Fin­der on the other Mac, en­ter your Mac’s address (say, smb://192.168.0.7) and click Con­nect. PCs can also ac­cess shared fold­ers us­ing the AFP or SMB pro­to­cols and your Mac’s IP address.
