XP Authentication

By mvitiello ·
Hi Everyone. I have an NT box that cannot authenticate to an XP box. I can see the XP box in Net Neighborhood, I just can't authenticate to it. This is the result of downloading the security updates.

Any help with this would be appreciated....Thanks...Michele

i have solved the xp authentication problem. it seems that when i downloaded security pathes (i can't remember which ones right now) it changed the local secutity settings to a policy that only authenticated users could logon. i tried to change the object of the policy to computers but i couldn't save it so i used users as the object and added all local accounts. if anyone has any comments send them....
