I have a macbook air and a win7 pro PC I want to share files across on a home network. I have both systems configured to file share. Each system is present on the other system. When I try to finalize the connection both ask me for ID and passwords. On the mac when I press connect a window asks me for my Name and Password along with connect as Guest or Registered User (default).. The name is auto-filled with my name with no spaces. What password is it asking for? Network (tried), Mac login (tried)? Admin (tried)? All the google searches simply say enter your ID and PW.
From the PC side it asks for my network Password but I'm not sure what to enter for user. Registered user on the PC (admin)? Network Name? I have the network PW from my network settings menu. The domain is showing as my PC name.
The PC has always been on the homegroup. I am trying to add the mac.
Should I create a new network instead?
This doesnt seem like it should be as hard I am finding it to be. Feel free to be specific in your instructions and places to find the information requested.
Thanks in advance.
