Home Networking

By fonaset ·
Hello, I am running a home network which comprises of five computers with different operating systems. These are:

1.Ms Windows Server 2000 (Server)
2.Ms Windows 98 SE (Client)x2 computers
3.Ms Windows ME (Client)x2 computers
4.Internet connection Sharing (ADSL)

They are all up and running but the problem is that when ever I want to access the Ms windows 2000 server from the client computers running Windows 98 and Windows Millennium, it always displays the follownig messages:

You must supply a password to make this connection:
RESOURCE: \\FONASET1/IPC$
PASSWOR **************

I carefully entered the password all in lower cases but it displays error messages that "the password was not recognises". But I can access the rest of the client computers from the Win2000 serever without any problem.

Now, how can I be able to access the server computer from the client computers successfully?

Thanks and hoping to hear from you.

Hi,

On the win2k server you have to created some users with their password (and access level).
On the other os's you have to specify the logon too client for microsoft networking and not windows logon. The problem that you are experiencing is that the username and password from the windows logon doesn't match with a user account in the w2k server.
in the win9x and windows me select client for networks as the logon option, in the window above this option 2x klik client for microsoft option and select that they have to login on a domain and type the name of your domain (sorry , can't remember the exact terms), and you are set to go.

Make SURE that your clients are members of the SAME domain/workgroup as the server.
