NEWBIE: logon on two pc network
spike Aug-09-00 11:46 AM
Hi,
I'm trying to connect my laptop wich I use for work to my PC at home.
At work I connect to a network with a assigned username/password.
But what do I use on the home PC as a user/password to connect with the other PC??
And what username/password do I need on the laptop?
I hope the problem is clear.

Thnx

If you are trying to access your home pc then you need to install some software such as pc anywhere on both your laptop and home pc to allow you to connect,unless you happen to be running NT Server at home. If you are set up RAS.

You probably have a Novell, Win NT, or Win 2000 server at work. If so, it is set-up with a domain, which requires a domain name in the MS Windows Client in Network Properties in the Control Panel. The server controls who can use the domain. Since you do not have a domain server at home, you will have uncheck the use domain check box or cancel the domain login when booting-up. The Windows workgroup name in the Identification tab will be the same as the domain name. Both PCs at home must have the same workgroup name and different computer names. Larry
