  • Create a folder of your own on the other machine. Make certain that it is openable to the world and checj your system to see if it can open the the files.

    Well your login credentials you logged in with on your computer are
    being presented to the remote computer to access files on the remote
    computer. The remote computer knows nothing about your login credentials
    you used on the other computer.  Therefore it's access denied.  A
    program runs under the context of the logged in user account.
     
    So you create a user account on the remote machine that matches your
    user account on the computer you logged into with the proper permissions
    on the folder, or you use the "Everyone" group user account on the
    remote machine folder with the proper permissions so that a remote user
    can access files on the remote machine.
     
    You have a simple user permissions issue.
