    Please see immage attached. It is to mention I am using Windows 7 ultimate and not part of any domain. I am on workgroup but it shows i am on domain.

  • Hi Ahmed Malhi,

    please consider this...

    When you want to connect to PC1 with the name "PC1" from PC2 you must use the username in this format: "PC1\username" to log on with the local user profile on PC1.

    Hope this helps :)
