RAS and Win98

By whitepatch ·
I setup RAS/VPN and i can access our NT4 network via AOL/Win98 from my laptop at home. In Explorer i can see network computers beneath the Network Neighborhood icon, but the system won't let me access shared folders (by clicking + sign), although i've given my user name full access to the folder. What am i forgetting? update for Win98? configuration? permission?

I've had problems with this, I think there is a problem with accessing shares that are user level access control over RAS, with 98 anyway. Try setting the computer you want to access to share-level instead of user-level and use a password. This isn't quite as secure but will immediately tell you if this is the problem. I believe there is a document on this in MS Technet.

I think the problem is the AOL adapter. My clients had to switch to MSN because we couldn't get VPN to work properly with AOL.
If you can, unistall AOL and use another dialup. If you need one go to www.worldspy.com (free internet, no banners, no busy signals, software to dowload 1.44MB)
Try it without AOL.

Good Luck!

i used another isp and i was able to access all folders and files. I think AOL may be blocking any or all VPN connections through their system (to verify this, who's been successful with RAS/VPN via AOL?)

I believe you have to setup Shared folders under each PC AND have "pass-through authentication", which quite literally means your windows 98 UserId and password combination have to be exactly identical to your windows NT UserId and password combination. If you have total admin rights on the NT box you are attaching to I believe you may be able to attach to C$ - a default share assigned to the the root c: drive.

either the fact that your useing AOL ( which out dept states if you install AOL on your laptop we at that point as the IT dept wiull not support it. too many issues.

or to access shares you need to log into the network. Not just VPN but another step to log in to the network. You will see the PC's and shares but can not access them. Talk to your sysadmin about logging into the DOmain after VPNing in.
