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 OK

CMD-K with SMB:// 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:// as Guest to 'Jim Lacey's Public Folder'

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

Desperate to make connection...
