|Network Neighborhood: Cannot Access
Windows NT 4.0 Resources
I have two machines on the network, one using Windows NT 4.0 and the other Windows 95. They are both in the same workgroup.
The Windows 95 machine (Liberty) can see the Windows NT system (Life) in the Network Neighborhood. However, when you double click on Life, it asks you for a password for \\LIFE\IPC$.
What's going on here is that there needs
to be an account on the Windows NT machine that matches
the network logon name for the Windows 95 computer. For
example, the network logon for my Win95 system is
"Bill." And I have an account, with appropriate
privileges, for user "Bill" on the NT machine.
The password you assign to your NT account will be the
default password needed to access shared resources across
the network on the NT computer.
