Cannot connect as Registered User to MAC OSX on same network.

Attempting to connect from [Baryon/Mavericks] to second MAC OSX [TopQuark/Mavericks] on local Ethernet network fails, Connect as guest to public folder OK. Ping 10.0.1.43 OK

CMD-K with SMB://10.0.1.43 does not return user name, returns Apple ID (why?).  

SMB://topquark.local returns cannot find server

Cannot login to TopQuark with User Name + Topquark startup login password (is this correct password to use?)

Under Shared, Can only log into TopQuark with SMB://10.0.1.43 as Guest to 'Jim Lacey's Public Folder'

Under Shared, cannot login as Registered User or Guest to topquark.local

Desperate to make connection...

You should be able to log in using the administrator's name and password from TopQuark. I assume Jim Lacey is the administrator. Use Jim Lacey's admin name and password from TopQuark to log in.

No, I verified Jim Lacey as TopQuark Admin and changed password. Still cannot login as Registered User using CMD-K. Perhaps computer name is corrupt somewhere in OS. Rename & New User/Password?

Also, system has Parallels 9 Desktop.

As I am just setting up system, loss of data is not issue if rename will cause loss.

I am puzzled at your reference to Parallels 9 Desktop. Is Parallels running on TopQuark? If so, shut it down and see if you can then connect directly to the Mac OS on TopQuark. Make sure the IP address you are using is the Mac's IP address and not that of Parallels.

According to the Parallels manual, in the default 'Shared Networking' mode, Parallels/Windows 8.1 does not have an IP address. In any event, I setup so that Parallels does not automatically start at OSX boot. Parallels Bridged Ethernet option provides separate IP address for windows.

Problem persists with Parallels shutdown...

Long shot but try jimlacey instead of Jim Lacey for the username.
