I have just set up a Personal Area Network Via Bluetooth between my Desktop PC and my Laptop, The connection works and shows as connected on the Network Connections Window, It also shows as sending and receiving packets.

However I can not access each machine from the other, I have tried to map a network drive, which again it does, but before finishing it asks me for a User Name & Password. I have never set up any passwords and have tried all those I would possibly use.

Any ideas where to look for the password or this there a default?

If you're using PAN (are you sure?) then you must either have a DHCP server on your network or manually set the computers with eahc IP address in the private network, and DNS addresses.

You know you're using PAN if your configuration is set to "Private Network", instead of "Internet Sharing".

As for the password, start with nothing, the your user name and blank password.
