I'm trying to use this feature to connect my notebook to my office PC. I've setup the connection using the dcc wizard.
The office PC is connected to an ethernet lan on an NT domain. When I try to connect I get a diologue box requesting a username and password. The passwords and usernames are not accepted and just disconnects me

Well, if you are on an NT domain, the account you are trying to logon with must be present in the Domain. also bear in mind that most domains are set up so that there will be no duplicate logons. (ie: if you are trying to use the same account on both the desktop and notebook machine, you are prolly out of luck)
