And thats why windows fails.

You could print it all out, mail it to yourself, then scan it into your pc.

What steps did you go through already?
Did you already connect them and its giving you that error when you try to transfer stuff? Or its giving you that error when you try to connect?

Do you have a router?
If so, go through that rather than a direct connection.

NEED MOAR INFORMATIONS!

What OS is on each machine?

How are they connected? Through a router? Or something else?

OK then.

If anyone else is having trouble with this here's what I recommend:

On computer A open a command prompt by running (Windowskey+R) cmd

At the prompt, run ipconfig and look for where it says IP Address or IPv4 Address. This is computer A's local address. Let's say for example it is 192.168.0.143

Go to computer B, open an explorer window and navigate to double-backslash-computer-A's-address. For example \\192.168.0.143

If it doesn't work, try the same thing from computer A to B.

Nothing will show up if you don't share a folder first.

You may be asked to login when you try to connect. You should be able to use your Windows username and password on the target machine.

If you are trying to connect from a Linux computer to Windows, use the smb:// protocol, for example smb://192.168.0.143

To be fair, there are easier things to do than navigate Windows' fairly horrific network sharing stuff. Seems awfully slow to me most of the time.

You could maybe like send them to relationship counselling or something.

I find I only really have trouble with Windows networking when I try to use the machine name. If you just use the IP address it is a lot less flaky.
