How can I make my iMac search for a Remote Discs (as though it were a MacBook Air)?

How do you enable "DVD or CD Sharing" remote discs on a Mac with a built-in optical drive? I don't mean offering discs (which is done via the System Preferences GUI), I mean, discovering them.

In Terminal, type the following commands:

defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser EnableODiskBrowsing -bool true
defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser ODSSupported -bool true
