November 12th, 2010, 12:10 AM
so, a couple months ago i got this program called Connect360. It allowed me to stream movies and music to my xbox. Then one day it suddenly stopped working. I didnt think anything of it. But now today, i receive my new Boxee Box in the mail. I have 2 imacs in my home... one of them, the one im on right now, isnt seen at all by boxee, yet my other mac is. Everything is on the same network. My other mac and this mac can easily connect to each other and share files. But this mac simply cannot send files ive tried reinstalling snow leopard... that didnt work.... what can i do so that i can share with boxee? router settings? extreme terminal commands? I'm willing to try anything...

In system preferences, click Sharing and check File Sharing. Add the folders you want to share, click options and select SMB sharing and then select your username. On the Boxee box in settings / local content or wherever it is you add folders, select manual and enter the computer's IP address, and the user/password that you checked under the SMB section.

I tried that and it either says "connection timed out" or "connection refused"

Firewall running on the machine at all? Also, make sure under System Preferences / Accounts under Guest account that sharing is checked. Also make sure your username has a password set. I don't know how users without passwords work

No fiewall at all... sharing is on for both accounts. still doesnt work... it use to work when i had connect360... then it just stopped so i think that may have something to do with it.... cause my other mac can connect to boxee just fine.
