    credentials problem accessing computer on home network


    Simple version:
    When I attempt to access computer name Tosh-64 from any other computer on the network, I WAS getting challenged for a user name and p/w. I kept getting 'wrong uname or p/w. Made a big mistake and tried MS account credentials. It's a local account and of course that failed.



    I finally realized THAT computer HAS no password, but I can't get back to it being a local account. Accessing it now results in it still wanting to use MS account.

    screen shot:

    Ms dosnt like no password as it's a security risk and makes it hard to network if password isn't used

    Thank you. I have since provided a p/w for that machine but now, when I try to access it, I get the screen shot. Need to somehow reset something back to local ... with password.

    Edit:
    Solution. Switch to MS account on target machine. Update guest machine with MS credentials. Switch back to local account on target. All seems to work correctly now.

    Thanks again.
