Network Credentials


Well-Known Member
I changed the name on one my network computers and now I cannot access. A pop-up asking me for credentials? Top line says; "enter Network Credentials", next line says, "Enter Your Credentials". I have tried most previous passwords that I can recall without success.

So, what is it asking for ?

Network Credentials ? , Credentials for computer I am currently on ? , or credentials for computer I am trying to log on ?

and, How can I view or change any of these credential if needed ?

It will always been the credentials for the remote computer. If these credentials are local to the computer you usually want to supply the computer name in the user name such as COMPUTER1\USER1
