Log in MacOS using Win NT 4 users

By rhiegen ·
Dear Friends,

I have one Server PDC running Win NT 4.0. There are several PCs and
some Macs in the same network and domain. Now I need my macs to be
able to accept the users log in to them using the same users and
passwords they have to logon to the PCs transparently. Is there a
way to provide it. I already use a Mac Volume in my PDC to share
files between PCs and Macs.

Thank you in advance,

Paulo

I believe you can't do that in any OS previous
to MacOS X, but if you have OS X, you might
have a chance.
Now, in system preferences, under "log in"
you can tell the Mac to be able to log in from
network users. You click the checkbox that
says 'Show "other user" in list for network
users, and when you start up the main log in
window will let you do what you're looking for...
Good luck.

In order to do this you need to but a program called DAVE or something similar. DAVE is the popular choice. It is fairly easy to use once you figure it out and has been around for years. There are many others as well. It is worth mention that you can not accomplish this without the extra software. DAVE works with every version of the Mac OS that I know of and is a company in Texas - sorry no URL.
