Password protecting shared files on NT and W98
frogsie May-19-02 04:02 AM

I'm really stumped on this one and have heard it might be a known problem but don't know if there's a fix:

All our PCs are Microsoft networked - some run on Windows 98 and others on Microsoft NT. The option to restrict access to a shared folders on W98 is to password protect it - in which case the other W98 users can access it with the password but the NT users cannot; it is unable to find the username/id.

The other way works fine - the option for NT users to restrict access to their shared folders is to set up access to only certain users.

Any help greatly appreciated!!

“Windows NT Client Unable to Connect to Windows 95 Server (Q131675)” at http://support.microsoft.com/search/preview.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q131675 )copy and paste the entire link) applies to Windows 95 and 98 (and probably Me). It has some possible workarounds. Larry
