I used to be able to type
start \\other_machine\c$ in PowerShell and Windows Explorer would pop up with a login dialog. Then I'd type
other_machine\moswald and my password (the account is a local admin, of course) and I'm in.
Now both machines have Windows 8 installed, and this no longer works (the dialog re-prompts with an "Access is denied" displayed). I've verified (through
whoami) that the user is named
other_machine\moswald, and I'm positive I'm typing the correct password.
So what gives?
Note : This is without a domain.
