    This wound me up for an entire week, and I can't be the only one...
    I assume once you've got to this stage, all your firewall and permissions and whatnot are perfect so I won't go through that.
    I was adamant I had my username and password correct.
    This is incredibly simple, ready?

    • Go to C:\Users
    • If you've ever changed your computer name or account name, the folder's name doesn't change... Use this (in my case, "User") in the username field.
    • Done

    I can't be the only one that had problems, so enjoy :)
