Can't get into PC cause of Firewall

I have two computers in my house. One is locked in the room. I need to get access to that computer. Good thing is that I have them on a network. Bad thing is I have the Windows firewall enabled and I forgot to share my folder. I tried to remote desktop into it but port 3389 is closed too. Is there anyway I can hack or atleast get into the C drive so i can retrieve my files. my room mate is away for 2 weeks. NEED HELP ERGENT!!!!

Seriously answering this question would be a violation of the terms and conditions of Experts Exchange. So break the lock may be your only option.

There is not much you can do.  The firewall is probably blockin NetBIOS which is needed to gain access to the C drive.  If you know the name of the computer, what happens if you type \\roommatecomputername\c$?  Does it ask you for a password, or does it say that it's not available?

it ask for a password but it assumes i'm a guess automatically. It grays out the part were normally I would add in the users name.

If you don't have the password, you will not get the files.  Maybe you call your friend for the password.

I have the password. The password is blank. But it won't let me change the user from guess.

Do you have the administrator account and password?  If so, you can use the commad line, I'll find it for you.

Type \\computername\c$
or
\\ip.ip.ip.ip\c$
When prompted for a username and pass, enter them.
Hook a monitor, keyboard and mouse up to the pc- log-in, change your firewall rules to allow RD 3389.

I've done the \\computername\c$ and \\ip.ip.ip.ip\c$ and I get a prompt for password, but I can only log in as guess. No password is set for the administrator account.

Presuming your are both running XP and you are not logged in as Administrator, either create an account with the same name as an admin account on the computer in your roommates room, or reset your admin password to the same as his (blank in this case) log in to admin, and then try \\computername\$

Clearly this question is asking for help with a hack.....and should not be answered, under EE's own rules.  If the roommate wanted this person accessing their computer, they would not have locked the door.....and a simple phone call to the room-mate would solve the problem....if the roommate wanted it solved.  We should all say goodnight, gracie..................

Try using the net use command from the command prompt.

P:\>net use /?
The syntax of this command is:


NET USE
[devicename | *] [\\computername\sharename[\volume] [password | *]]
        [/USER:[domainname\]username]
        [/USER:[dotted domain name\]username]
        [/USER:[username@dotted domain name]
        [/SMARTCARD]
        [/SAVECRED]
        [[/DELETE] | [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]]

NET USE {devicename | *} [password | *] /HOME

NET USE [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]

The way to change the username that it prompts for the password for is either to create an identical username on your machine and login to your PC using that new name or specify the username in a net use statement.

net use \\machine\c$ /user:<username>
