Win 2000 Server
rsierra Jun-07-01 03:05 PM
Hi Gang,

I have built a PC with Win 2k Server that has two nic's in it. I have one nic coming in from a cable modem and the other out to a hub. I have two 98 machines going into the hub for data transfer and sharing the internet. I am able to share the internet but unable to view data on the server from the 98 machines. When I go from 98 to the Server it ask me for a password. the resource \\HOME\IPC$ the it wants the password I tried the Admin password to the server and 98 box but nothing. I have not set any other passwords on the Server. Can someone please point out what I am doing wrong? Thank you for your help.

I am getting the same error message. It says I must supply a password to make this connection:

Resource: \\HOME\IPC$

Password: ___________

I checked the changes that you asked me to make and they are applied.

Sorry for the hassel. Do you need anymore info about my setup? I have DHCP Enabled if that helps.

Are you logging into the domain from the clients? Larry

Well, you have to setup accounts on the server for each user. On the 98 machines you can set-up the domain login with Start, Setting, Control Panel, Network, select Clinet for Microsoft Networks, Properties, Check Login into Windows NT Domain, and enter the domain name in the box. Larry

I rebuilt the OS on this box. Can you tell me how to create domain on a Win2k Pro box?

Thank you

Note subject line?? You can't. You need Win 2K server to setup a domain controller. Do you have a server on the network? Letís go back a couple of posts. Did you try this http://duxcw.com/faq/network/2kshare.htm. Larry

Is this the case that you would need to add the
user off 98 station to user list of win2k box ?

or a non-recommended solution would be to add a guest user to win2k box (security issues)
