Rename Mac Computer to solve network connection

Will renaming Mac Computer to solve network connection issue.

Mac(1) Baryon [10.0.1.2] cannot connect as Registered User to Mac(2) TopQuark [10.0.1.43] on same Ethernet network. Ping OK, Guest OK. Using SMB:\\10.0.1.XX

Mac(2) connects to Mac(1) OK.

Will renaming TopQuark to, say, Fermion and new user/password fix this?

Renaming should not make a difference. I suspect the username and password you are using for TopQuark is not correct.

Also you should be using forward slashes not backslashes in the URL. ie. smb://10.0.1.43, not smb:\\10.0.1.43.

As I suspected from the beginning of this discussion, but then, how can I continue to login to topQuark with these credentials? Maybe login credentials are not credentials I should be using for network? I have tried all passwords I have used on these systems to no avail. Need to create new/additional admin?

>>Also you should be using forward slashes not backslashes in the URL. ie. smb://10.0.1.43, not smb:\\10.0.1.43.  - I know that, careless typing. CMD-K returns correct syntax.
