RAS Log-on problem

By steve0261 ·
Trying to log on remotely to an NT-workstation from Win95. Both have TCP/IP and Netbui enabled. From the W95 machine, using dial-up networking, I enter my user name and password and initiate the call. The NT machine answers and I can see the NT machine from the W95's "network neighborhood". When I click the NT machine from network neighborhood (on the W95 machine), a new box appears asking for a network password. Nothing I enter works, (including all network and administrator passwords for the NT).

Make sure that this machine has dial up permissions enabled.

The NT server is looking at your actual windows login when you d-click it in Network Neighborhood (not your Dial-up networking login). The reason the passwords you enter aren't working is that the NT server is using your current Windows login name with the password you're typing in. To see how you're logged into Windows, click on the Start button and see the username (if any) in the "Log off" option.

To fix this, you'll need a login prompt when Windows starts, to allow you to enter a username (& password) that the NT server will accept. There are two ways to do this. The easiest is to simply do a Find on *.pwl. Delete all your *.pwl files. Then, right-click Nework Neighborhood & choose Properties. Choose either Windows Logon or Client for Microsoft Networks as the Primary Network Logon. Click OK, then restart. If you chose Windows Logon in the previous section, you'll get a prompt for username & password. Enter appropriate credentials for the NT server you'll be connecting to. If you are using

Continued!!

If you are using Client for Microsoft Networks, enter the appropriate credentials in that prompt, and you'll see another prompt wanting you to provide Windows password info. Delete all the *****s in this prompt & press Enter. Lastly,try your dial-up connection to the NT server again.

You must have an account on NT machine. That
is if you want to use that Username and
password you logged to win95 then you must
have same account created on the NT machine.
And ofcourse you must have permission to the
resources you want to access

Sounds like you may need to log into the domain. If you are seeing the network and are unable to log on to any shares than this is what it is. I have my pc at home that dials into work and this is what my problem was. Go to Network Neighborhood and in your Client for Microsoft Networks and put in the correct domain name. Make sure that all your bindings to dial in adaptor are correct. Also make sure that the default login is set to Microsoft Family Login. Hope this helps you.
