How do I open up my WAN

By DigiMesh ·
I am in charge of a Three site NT4 WAN on TCP/IP. I need to open it up so that clients can share data more easly. I keep coming up with the same problem, the clients get asked to supply a password to use the resource, there is no password that will fit, and I have not set one up. It is not a permissions problem as for a test I set up a client Win95 with administrative permisions and they still were un able to use data on the other servers. I have two computers running Win98 that have no problem is this a OS problem? The four sites are set up as seperate domains, I do not have the time to make them into a single domain is there another way?
Thanks
Alex

You will need to establish trusts between the domains. Have a look through the KB and/or your copy of TechNet for the dirty details.

This is not an easy process. You need to establish the trust between domains alright, but this would be the easy part. You need name resolution, preferably with WINS or lm hosts in order to be able to do that. What bandwidth do you have in your WANconfiguration?

It is worth mentioning that NT and 9x need to supply a SET of credentials (login & password) in order to access resources. Unfortunatelly, NT and 9x send by default the DOMAIN\username as login (where DOMAIN is the local domain you've logged into) even if they access a remote resource, therefore this is WHY access will not be allowed. Is not the password, is the DOMAIN\username login, and the easiest way to get around this is indeed establishing trusts.
