10.6.4 machines not connecting to 10.5.8 iMac - again!

by species_49 / August 7, 2010 1:27 AM PDT

Had this problem with 10.6.3 but the update to 10.6.4 cured it. It worked fine.

Now, for some strange reason, none of the 10.6.4 machines on the network will connect anymore to the 10.5.8 machine. Nothing has changed, all settings are the same, the problem just re-appeared.

All I can suspect is one of the application updates from Apple has screwed things up?

Need the 10.5.8 machine because it runs applications that 10.6.4 can't manage.

Any ideas?
