    ‘Access Denied’ means you do not have Administrator rights, or, to put it in english for the stupid baby, You do not own the Network.

    I get Access is denied also and I am set as Administrator on BOTH my PCs. Is there an additional setting I need to set somewhere? I have no problems waking my computer through my LAN.
