access to w2k from win98

By lnn5432 ·
Hi! I need to get a user to be able to access a windows 2000 computer through the network on our site and from a windows 98 computer there is a password restriction. The box looks like: //d2y//... Password: I tried the password for the administrator of that w2k box but to no success. Please help! Thanks so much! Linda

access to w2k from win98

When you're accessing the windows 2000 computer from the windows 98 machine, you're prompted for a user name and password.

The user name is the name of the user who is currently logged on the Windows 98 machine.

This same account has to becreated on the windows 2000 computer (same user name and password).

Once this is done, then the windows 98 user will be able to browse shares on the windows 2000 machine.

feel free to email me if you have any other questions.
