A bit vague. More details?

ok, since you were a bit vague maybe this wont be the answer...
open control panel and double Network then click Acces Control tab then choose user level and make sure you put in your server name or ask your administator what it is....
And of course this probably isn't your answer...so thanks in advance for the rejection...


Well, I am asigned to manage the win95 lab. How do I set up
a password server for user level access?

Come on, david_r. Novell is good, but don't ask hime to buy that.  It's a _tad_ expensive :)  For user access control under Windows 95, you need  to share your drives for each name.
Right clic on the ressource to share, select, "share" then type or select the name who has a right to that ressource.
It's time consuming, and, naturally the security is bad. Novell, on the other hand will provide very high security, and plenty of options for ressources sharing. But it requires you to learn it, and it's hard and long.
