Is this a brand new setup, or was it working before?

I've got an 8.1 machine. If no one else answer it, I'll try connecting through my Mac and back tonight, if possible. Make sure under your firewall settings are set properly.

Sorry, I got sidetracked and lost this thread. I was unable to connect via 8.1. The issues with W8.1 connectivity seem unnecessarily complex, and did not accept my Mac's connections for reasons I'm unclear about . I suspect IPv6. It also works for m on 7, like you. But I have IPv6 turned off on that machine. Very frustrating. It seems as if MSFT is making this unnecessarily complex. I think the easiest thing to do is use Dropbox to simplify this. Or setup the folder as an FTP site.
