Remotely configure Windows 95 registry from NT workstation

With Windows NT 4.0, you can remotely control and configure Win9x registry settings by installing the Remote Registry Service found in the admin/nettools directory on the Windows 9x CD. The Remote Registry Service needs to run on the NT workstation running regedit remotely and on the remote Win95 machine. User-level security and remote administration must be enabled on the Win95 machine.

If you are administrating a mixed NT and Win9x environment, you should know that Microsoft has delivered a method to allow Win9x clients to use NTLMv2 authenication. See NTLMv2 for more information.
