I have two computers linked via ethernet network, one is using Windows NT 4.0 workstation (sp3) the other is using Windows 95.  Through the network neighborhood the nt machine can access th 95 machine fine, but when you try to access the nt machine from the 95 one it prompts me for a "\\JENNIFER\IPC$" password, where Jennifer is the computer name.  I cannot find anywhere to change this password.  Hellllllp.

The Windows 95 client do not have account on NTWS 4.0, so the above problem appears. You should create some accounts on NTWS4.0 and share NT's resource to everyone or some specified users. The username used on Windows 95 should be same as one on the NTWS's account.

If so, share the resource to everyone without password, your windows 95 clients will access the shared resource freely.

thanks, I thought that I did all that, but as it turns out I confused the computer name with the account name...
