  1. Hi guys,

    I wanted to move some files to my laptop to save PC disk space (i have 80GB)
    I connected my PC with laptop over LAN. There was no problems connecting it, but when i go to "Run" and type \\192.168.0.2\FolderShare, small window pops up with User and Password fields. I don't know what password should i enter. I've done this before, and i've never been asked for password. Anyone knows this?

    Use a userid/password that's already defined on the 192.168.0.2 machine and has access rights to the folder/files you want

    /* edit */
    Oh.. you also might be forced to create a non-blank password for the userid if it's currently blank. There's actually a method to turn off the non-blank password requirement but for your own network security, its best to use non blank passwords
