Well - the system does not let you answer your own question so I had to make a new account.


I called Apple Support. WOW that was easy!! I can't believe how easy. Of course I was going to have to pay since the machine is so old (6 years), but since I had upgraded the OS to Leopard, it was FREE!

- First call:
They said run "Fix Permissions" from the Disk Utility app. Then in Sys Prefs>Sharing turn OFF all sharing - do a restart - then turn them back on. 

This was a good idea but did not work.

- Second call:
So I went back online and got an immediate slot - no waiting! 

SysPrefs>Security: Firewall tab:
There are 3 Options:
  - Allow all incoming connections
  - Allow only essential services
  - Set access for specific services and applications.

The problem is that the list box is visible even when #2 is selected so it looks like the items are available. But they are not.

So I '''set to option #3''' and was able to connect.

Not sure when my machine got changed, the other was probably changed at wife's work.

Hope this can help others.

BTW - Screen Sharing is awesome. Allows me to do a lot of compute intensive jobs on the faster machine while still on my main old G5.
