When on my windows 10 laptop I can see and access two of my three devices on my network but I cannot access my iMac. I get the windows security window opening asking me to enter my network credentials in order to connect to my iMac. My user name is displayed and I need to enter a password.
I have tried entering the same name and password that I use to log onto my iMac and have also tried entering the same name and password I use to log onto my Windows 10 laptop but these are both rejected. I do not know where I can find the user name and password that is required.
I can however access my Windows 10 laptop from my iMac but not the other way round.
Unfortunately Networking is not my field so any help would be much appreciated.
