FTP Hassle


New Member
I have a Matebook 14 laptop with Windows 10 home edition which is on my wi-fi network. I want to connect to it from my Windows 8.1 PC (to transfer files) which does not have wi-fi but is connected to the net using ethernet. I have enabled the FTP on my laptop using a couple of website for guidance and on my PC it appears under Network as a laptop. But when I click on it it requires the log in details for this PC (I assume). I have tried that but no luck; it always says the username or password is inorrect.
Can anyone offer some advice?
