Open Win95 share from NT ws on NT networ

By williamj ·
For reference see Q169841 at support.microsoft.com/support/kb
Win95 share is user-level, and using accounts from NT4sp4 PDC, noone on NT can open the share unless it is shared to the world ( defeats the purpose ), no matter their access level or share name config. MS says I need a newer version of VSERVER.VXD on the Win95 that is doing the sharing, but does not make the file available for download. I refuse to believe that this is a rare problem, and wonder if anyone out there has the updated vxd files: v4.00.954 4/24/97 for OEM & sr1 ; v4.00.1112 7/24/97 for sr2 & sr2.x. Furthermore while trying something ( involving v4.00.2222 from Win98, backwards compatible? ha ) I found that on a sr2 pc it could be set to user-level but I couldn't get the user listing from the server. It just told me to try again later. Rebooted, reinstalled, etc., same error. Any input is appreciated.

Check the Network Icon, Client for Microsoft, Logon to an NT Domain, check correct name entered.
Also, and more likely check the Access contol, check User Level access, check the domain name. Win9x have a nasty habit of reverting to Share level, for no good reason.
When its is working, when you share you should see the User list from the NT domain.
One final thought check the File and Print Sharing Button that both boxes are ticked.

If you are still tackling this problem, perhaps you should consider calling your local super-hero.
