Remote access to Windows NT 4.0 servers?

By shield509 ·
I have a number of remote dial-in users, Windows 98 and Windows 2000 notebooks, who connect to the Windows NT4.0 server via dial-in ISDN circuits. The system consists of a Cisco Router with Cisco PIX thru an Intel Switch and hubs. The problem is this: The Router answers and passes the connection to the Server where User Name and Password are authenticated. Now the problem.... Upon completion of the authentication the network is not displayed in the network neighborhood and you can't map drives. The system worked correctly before the Windows NT4.0 servers were replaced with new CPUs therefore I believe something was left out when the new servers were configured. I have checked User Names, Passwords, etc. but can't identify the problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

you must in the RRAS configuration of NT4 server allow remote clients running NETBEUI.

that's in network configuration in the control panel.

Thank you for your reply. While it did not directly assist me with the problem it did lead me to do a complete review of all configurations. The problem was found to be a name resolution situation. Once that was corrected everything worked perfectly. Some times we can see the trees for the forrest. But with one helping another we succeed. Thanks
