I've a D4 DCOM server installed on NT 4 (SP5). D4 client is installed on another PC, also running NT4 (SP5).
When logged onto the client and server PCs with same NT user account then client can launch server without any problems. However, if logged onto client and server with different NT user accounts then client cannot launch server. In this case Client can only connect to server if it is already running.
I've tried various DCOMCNFG settings but to no avail. For the server, I've got user-defined settings for the server object as follows:
Authentication level - connect
Location - run application on this computer
Security - user defined with everyone, interactive & system assigned to access and launch permissions
Identity - interactive user
Since only Client.exe and Server.tlb are installed on client PC the server object doesn't appear in dcomcnfg. But I have set default DCOM settings on client PC as follows:
Authentication - Connect
Impersonation - Identity
Security - everyone, interactive & system assigned to access and laucnh permissions
I want any client running under any BT account to be able to launch server. Any ideas where I'm going wrong?
