I'm trying to connect to another PC on the same network so I can transfer files. I have been using the following tutorial http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-vista/copy-files-to-another-computer. However, when I attempt to do so, it asks for a network username and password, and the domain is the name of my PC.
My PC only has 1 user, and my brother's PC only has 1 user. I tried entering my brother's PC name and his username, and his password i.e.
BRO-PC\Bro and he entered his password, but this won't let me access his PC's files.
I don't know what "username" and "password" Windows is asking for. Neither of us are on a HomeGroup. Is this needed? When I made a HomeGroup, he joined it but it still asked for a username and password, and I couldn't even see his PC listed under my HomeGroup, so I removed the HomeGroup to start from scratch.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
