Error Browsing/Mapping a Drive on an NT System
You see the NT system in your "Network
Neighborhood", but as soon to like to access
it to view the list of "Shared"
resources, you get prompted for a password:
What is this "IPC$" ?
On the NT-system, the disk was properly "shared":
When you started your Windows95 system and got the Network
under which "User-Name" and
"Password" did you login ?
Most Windows95 users are a little "sloppy" with
User-Names, because in worst case, Windows95 will just prompt for
a new Password, and on a Windows95 PC-to-PC network, access is
anyway NOT controlled by User-Level.
And since now on the NT-system the sharing is set to "EVERYONE", you should be able to connect using ANY
NT understands "EVERYBODY"
not really as anybody (using any name), but as the User-group
"EVERYBODY", which contains automatically
all users defined on the NT system ( as a "Secure
Operating system", NT does not give away
access to the disk to an unknown user without proper
authorization ! )
So, if you got the above message, then you did NOT login to the
Windows95 system with a User-Name and Password,
as it is defined as a valid NT-user.
