Accessing a WorkGroup Computer from Domain Member Computer

I have a computer named Windows7 that I am trying to connect to it from a Domain member computer using UNC path \\IPaddress\C$
I get the pop window to enter credentials. I type in Windows7\Myadmin then password for Myadmin , but I cannot connect.
If I go to Windows7 computer I type Myadmin  and Password then I can login.
Also, From Windows7{Workgroup} i can connect to the Domain Member computer using UNC path \\Computer\C$.
I get a popup for username and password.. I type in \\DomainName\Username then password.

I am not sure what could be the issue.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you
