    Unable to SHARE files between 2 Win 10 computers


    Computer 1: Windows 10 Desktop
    Computer 2: Windows 10 Laptop

    On both machines, I have:

    Turn on network discovery.
    Turn on file and printer sharing.
    (same for Guest/Public)
    Allow Windows manage homegroup connections.

    Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the Public folders.
    Turn off password protected sharing

    I can see Computer 1 and 2 under Network on both machines.

    I have a folder shared on both computers.

    I've managed to get Computer 2 to see shared folders on Computer 1.

    However, I cannot seem to get Computer 1 to see shared folders on Computer 2.

    When I click on the Domain name of the Laptop under Network, it requests Network Credentials.

    Entering the Username/Password of either machine does not work.

    I'm out of ideas.

    Anyone?

    TIA

    :)
