Hi greeneel,

It's default behaviour for local user accounts not to be able to connect to other machines.

Log in as the Administrator
Right-click My Computer
Manage
Local Users & Groups
Users
Right-click in the Right-Hand Pane
New User...

That will then allow you to create the user that you want to log on.

I hope that this helps - let me know if you need any further help.

Hi.  Thanks for the "A".  Glad I could help :-)

JammyPak has a good point about the Guest account though!
