I have 2 computer's, my netbook and my main computer. I have these setup on the same network using LAN. I created a network drive on my main computer and would like to access it on my other computer but it always asks me for a password when i try to map the network on the computer that i am trying to share it to. I have not set any passwords on the computer that is hosting the network drive. Help please.

Best Regards

That's correct. Use the same usernames and set the same passwords on both computers.

It is asking for a password when i have not set one?
I type in the user; Admin (in this case)
and it says "incorrect password"
I have not set a password at all ever on this computer.

Edit; The problem was i needed to set a password X_X.

Are both computers in the same workgroup? If not, change the workgroup to the same name. And you should always set a password for the admin account!
