If you are on an internal 'local (file) network' I would expect that you can 
simply use the URL that you would use to look at the same folder with Win 
Explorer, e.g. \\PC-3\OtherGuy\HisRepo (note this uses the windows backslash 
separator)  I use this method with Git Extensions and Git for Windows (msysgit 
compiled) at work. It doesn't need usernames or passwords as teh permissions 
are done by the file system.

If you are accessing via an intranet, or are using Cygwin then the linux style 
is more likely, and don't forget to munge (adjust) the colon in "C:"

    Simply start with `git init` on the first PC. (and `git add`; `git commit` 
etc. so you have something in the repo)
    Permit sharing.
    Got to second (or third, 4th, ..) PC, create directory, permit sharing, and 
then `git clone`. This should populate the directory with the 'copy' of the 
remote PC-1.
    Create and checkout your development branch for that PC-n.
    Note that you do not have a central bare repository machine. All your 
remotes are working machines, so there is a potential for collision if one 
person tries to push a branch that is checked out (and possibly dirty with 
in-work, uncommitted changes) on the remote machine. I believe git will refuse, 
but I'm not sure.

    You can now 'push' that branch back to PC-1, and 'fetch' from PC-1 any work 
they did. Like wise you can push work from PC-2 to PC-4 if they are want to 
exchange work on a feature they are working on (and fetch back)

    I would advice never to 'pull' in this situation as it attempts an auto 
merge, but to do a distinct two step of 'fetch' and then 'merge'. It gives you 
a breathing space just in case. (option to require it to be a ff, and clean 

    Designate one machine as the location of the primary reference for which 
ever branch you end up using as "master", and set up some admin to stage those 
updates gracefully with team emails to notify when updates are in place.

    Does that help?
