NT Logon

By mpayton ·
I've got a Win98 machine that will logon to the local NT network but will not logon to the remote NT network (through a router). I am able to ping the PDC on the remote domain but it refuses to authenticate. I brought the PC to the opposite side of therouter and it won't authenticate to the server on te other side. Any ideas?

Do you get an error message? Are you saying that you can only logon to the server(s) on the same side of your router - i.e. whichever side of the router you're on, you can log in there?

If so, make sure that you have the UDP ports (137, 138 and especially 139) open on your router. They're needed for NetBIOS communication in Microsoft networking.

If you mean that you just can't log onto that remote domain regardless of which side of the router you're on...have you checked in Networking properties to make sure that you have the correct domain specified? Also do you have a valid and enabled account on the NT Server, are you using the correct password and remember that passwords are case-sensitive.

Check out VNC from AT&T Labs. It will let you view, and control if you want, remote machines. NT, Win95, Win98, Linux...just about anything. And it's free.

Possibly are you running TCP/IP with DHCP on the PDC? If so make sure your router passes DHCP discovery packets. Run winipcfg at the run line to see if your PC is getting an IP address from the DHCP server.

Are you running IP as a protocol? Is WINS enabled and configured?

When a windows machine attaches to a network without WINS, it can't see across a router.

To find out if this is the problem, copy the LMHOSTS.SAM file in the \WINDOWS directory toLMHOSTS. Add the PDC for the domain that you want to log into to this file, as well as the domain name itself.

In a routed environment, you need either LMHOSTS or WINS, with WINS being much easier to administer in the long run.

Sounds like you dont have a trust set up between the domains. If you set up the trust, it should work!
