  1. I presume that you know the admin user name and password. Is there an active firewall that could be blocking the connection?
  2. The login box that comes up with will be expecting a user name in the format of...

    "PC-name"or"DOMAIN"\"Username"

    Some examples

    MYPC\Administrator
    MYDOMAIN\User.Name
