I am currently trying to log into a Novell 4.1 server and
map 2 volumes from it, and map a drive to an NT4.0 running FPNW.  I can do that fine, but I can't change my password on the NT.  Setpass and Chgpass both give an error "error changing password".  I copied the .RPC files into my path
and the password changed, but not to what I typed in.  I had
to go to the server and change the password back. I can also force it to change my password at login, but it isn't changed to what I typed in.   HELP!!!!!

Thanks,
Mark Housepian

SYMPTOMS
========
When a Netware client connects to a Windows NT Server running FPNW and tries to change the password, the chgpass or setpass command may fail and the following error massage may appear:
   Error changing password
 
CAUSE
======
The RPC server service does not process the change password request before the Netware client times out.
 
WORKAROUND
==========
In Control Panel, select the Services icon, and set the RPC server and RPC Locator to start automatically. Then reboot the server.
