    Try checking your firewall settings on both the Mac and the Windows devices.

    As a quick test try disabling the firewalls of both machines temporarily and see if they can communicate. If so, slowly turn the firewalls back on, bit by bit, until you find the right settings.

    Something else when the Mac starts you might be asked if you want to allow the MBH server to communicate with the outside world, make sure you answer OK. You'll also need to have Xamarin Studio running on the Mac too (in my experience).

    Hope that helps,
