Using NT 4 with SP3 and Ras installed, when a windows 95 client connects to the RAS server via DUN, the ras authenticates the user logon credentials and a "Network dialog box" appears asking for a username and password to gain access to the network. At this point the error "No domain controller was found - you will not be able to gain access to some resources". If you quit at this point from a dos box you can ping the servers on the lan, and do name lookups, you can even map a drive to a share on one of your servers, but threw network neighberhood the error "unable to browse the network" occurs.
The configuration is as follows :
windows 95 osr2 released by ibm
updated ras2upd.exe installed.
NT 4 SP3 with a USR Courier V Everything modem
My server also acts as my Primary Wins Server
Make use of DHCP to get ip addr
Solutions already tried
