network NT

I have win NT workstation and I'm connected to a LAN and not logged to a  domain as many other users.
How can I define a user ( username and password ) to connect to my shares throught the network ( not using the guest account coz then everyone would get connected ).

Start Menu>Programs>Administrative Tools>User Manager

Define you new user(s) and then you can configure the shared resources to allow them access.  You may want to use a group level access instead if there are more than a couple of users.

The users I wish to add are not on the same domain.
I tried doing it but the user that tries to connect is propted with the following message " \\MY PC NAME\$IPC " and has to supply a password.
What password should he supply?
He wasn't asked for a username.

Use the SAME username as he is logged on to his domain with. This is the name that his client tries to authenticate with.

We are not logged to a domain, we are in the same workgroup.
When i defined the user using his username on the workgroup it didn't work.

I think that when he is prompted with " \\MY PC NAME\$IPC " the password that it is looking for is your admin password as $IPC is referring to a named pipe that is there for administrative purposes.

Well, you can create an account on your NT box with a simple username and password.

Then use that username and password to log onto the ohter box.

Then share the directories you wish.

yes, you got that right but for some reason you won't be able to log in if you are not using the same password as well.
There is something between the NT box and the win98 that won't let you do it till you use the same password that was specified on the NT.
