Verified the SHARED is not checked in the gear section at botton (Hide Sections) yet it does not show. It does show in Finder. Am I not configured correctly?

    Same problem here. Can't figure out why...
    Tried also with a new user.

    What kind of shares would you expect to see, AFP, SMB...?

    on my iMac under finder in the left panel under SHARED I currently see:
    1. my Macbook Air
    2. my win7 pc
    3. my zino-pc (win)
    4, my wireless canon printer

    all, 4 are on the same wireless ssid but the iMac is wired to the router
    yet, if I bring up PF, the "SHARED" section only shows the MbAir

    No doubt I'm doing something wrong in the setup, just can't figure out how to correct it

    There's an explanation about Windows SMB shares here.
