MS Peer Service Network Login
Posted on 1998-12-01
I am attempting to create a small web site using Microsoft Peer Services Webserver on Windows NT.
One of my web pages calls a C++ CGI executable, which creates a small text file and tries to copy it to another NT network server. However, the CopyFile function fails because the error 'invalid username or password' is returned.
I have worked out that this is due to the 'World
Wide Web Publishing Service' forcing any network logins to
use the 'System Account', rather than the current user account. I tried to change this in the Services option in#
control panel, but the options where ghosted out.
My current user account is in the Domain, but the
system account (Administrator) is password protected and I am not allowed to use this account (only Domain Administrator can use this). Therefore, does anyone know how to force the service to use a different login ?
