Your credentials didnt work error when trying to connect to a RDK

Hi, I have another computer and I would like to connect to it via Remote Desktop Connection. I have tried several times but I always get the message: Your credentials didn't work, please use another credentials.
I am using windows 7 professional on both computers, I have tried disabling the firewalls and some other things I red online but I couldnt make it work so far.

Can you please help?

Thank you

You may need to put user as \\pcname\username\fred. Having an account with same username password on that pc as the one your logged in on the other pc

Ok, thank you,

...can you pls elaborate a bit, do I need to place them exactly as you mention it with the backward
slashes? (Please see picture below). Do I have to change the username and passwords for both PCs and make them equal?

What is fred?
