Thanks for that link, that is a lot of info. The issue seems to be that I am not authorized to connect. I'm the admin on both PC's, but I keep getting "System Error 5 has occurred. Access denied" message. I googled that error and it says either I am missing permissions or computer account is disabled or firewall issues.

I just can't get passed the username and password screen. I've tried many of the configuration options in that link, but certain things I keep getting errors on.

If you have any other suggestions, please let me know.

Either way, I am wasting too much time on this problem. I'll come back to it later and give it another shot. But I just really wanted to get it though.

Thanks for all the help

If it's the the admin login and passwords you're talking about, then yes. I tried them from both pc's. In that link you posted it says that I have to enable TelnetClients in the users and groups, but when I try to do that I get another error saying that it is TelnetClients is unrecognizable. I don't know. I will come back to it. Thanks for all the help though.
