passwords

By srichardson ·
I have 2 pc's setup and would like to access one from the other but I do not know the password for the one pc. Is there anyway I can bypass this in order to view the documents on the other pc. I'm running Win98 and Win_2k. I'm trying to view the documents on the Win_2k machine and need the password that I don't have. Can I get some suggestions?

Hi,

Nope. You wont be able to get to the Win2K machine from the Win98 machine without a password if all the shares on the Win2K machine are tightened down. Win2K has much better security than Win98.

If you weren't aware of it, you might try the administrative shares... they may not be secured, but almost certainly are... map a network drive to

\\machinenameORipaddress\c$

...and see how you go. The only only other real option you'll have is to break into the Win2K machine itself. ButI suspect thats not an option for you and in any case, its an answer for another post.

Cheers,
Tim.

Rather than that, try assessing the ADMIN share, (from the 98 box type windows key+R) \\(2000 computer name)\admin$. Your chances are pretty slim here, as 98 has NO file permissions. I have a boot disk that has a linux password cracker that works good on 2k boxes, if you need it, Email me, we can work out the details.

Good luck!
Joe

Do you not have a username and password for the Win2k machine at all.

If you do, you need to log onto the Windows 98 machine with the same username and password and this will then allow you some access to the 2k machine.

You must have an account on the 2k machine or you will not have able to connect, as mentioned before, the security is much tighter. The same as a server in fact.
