Hi,
We have a small office lan with 4 win95 pc's and one WinNT workstation.
All of the win95 machines can share files/printers etc, but when i try to access the NT machine through network neighbourhood on any of the win95 machines, i keep getting asked for a password.
I have setup the NT machine as part of a workgroup called NETKONECT, this is the same workgroup as the win95 computers, i have setup the c drive to be a shared resource etc but still get the same message.
Any ideas?

In Windows network there are two types of access - resource level and user level. When you use workgroups you are using resource level access. It means that every share you defined on network maintain its own password and asks it when you try to connect to resource.
If you have Windows NT server you can install it as domain controler and maintain users' database on this computer. On Windows 95 define user level access and use global groups from domain controler to assign rights on shares.

P.S.
If you choose this way, don't install service pack 2 on Windows NT - there would be problems in connecting to Windows 95 shares from Windows NT. I havn't tried this with SP3.

Ok sounds good to me, we don't have an NT server to act as a domain controller, so the NT workstation will have to be part of a workgroup called NETKONECT,  so on the NT workstation do i specify which machines i want to allow access to and what passwords to use etc?

Cheers
