Problems connecting to sftp in Bodhi

I'm having trouble connecting to my Mac on the local network in Bodhi.

I'm running a triple boot with Windows XP, Fedora 17, and Bodhi. In Fedora, I have no problem locating and connecting to my Mac.

Using Nautilus, under "Browse Networks" my Mac shows up right away and I am easily connected by double clicking the icon and entering my username and password.

With Ubuntu, I can connect just as easily.

I've tried using the "Connect to Server" option, and several FTP clients but with no luck.

What I'm wondering is, what would cause distros like Bodhi and Fuduntu, to not be able to automatically detect my Mac when Fedora and Ubuntu have no problem?
