I have followed instructions found here but I am unable to see the Mac book as a computer in windows 10 network places. Nor can I map it.
Below is what the Mac screen looks like. Even the IP address is not the regular format (numbers). I'm not sure what needs to be done to make this work.
All help is appreciated.
Update The computer name/workgroup in MAC and PC are the same
Windows PC name
Now, you might see a difference between the computer name in the above. I tried both. Naming the computer in MAC under NETBIOS the same as that in Windows and naming it differently (as shown in the pictures). None worked
The IP address in MAC was the same as that when I logged into the windows. Both the windows and MAC OS are on the same PC so not sure if that makes any difference. Started with a 192.
In windows, when I ping the IP address is worked fine, but probably because the IP address in both MAC and PC are obviously the same. When I tried pinging the computer name (when different in MAC from Windows) it didn't work. I got the following error
Not sure what more I need to do. Elsewhere, I was told that with the latest version of Windows 10, file sharing isn't possible.
