Setting Up File Sharing

Whenever you set up a network, regardless of the type, you'll have to configure your computer to communicate with the network. Macintosh computers are big on security, and they won't let your computer talk to any other computer unless you give the other computers permission. Permission involves setting up file sharing options, and then creating accounts with specific user names, passwords, and permissions.

Click the Apple menu, and then click Sharing.

Click the Services tab.

Select the Personal File Sharing check box.

Click the Close button to return to the System Preferences main window.

TIMESAVER Press +L to quickly return to the System Preferences main window.
