Autologon

I have windows 3.11 and when the system turns on the logon to the server dialog box appears requesting my password. I know there is a way to have this autologon on to the server so that I do not have to input my password. I think you can modify the system.ini file to accomplish this as someone had done this on another system some months ago. Can someone provide me with the file names and the syntax and where to input this information to accomplish this. The server is a windows NT version 3.51.

Thanks Ed

What kind of a server are you logging into?  We need more information about the client as well before we can help.

Try removing the your_user_name.pwl file and when you log back into WFWG you will get a warning.  Just do as it states and you will create your userid again.  This time simply hit enter for your password (be sure you save it to the list).  When your Domain logon box appears enter your *real* password for the NT server.  Again besure you save this to the list or have it *remember* you.  This should simply log you into to both boxes with no questions asked.

Not the most secure thing in the world, but will defintately get you what you want.  I'm not sure I know of any other way to handle this.

Good Luck!
