Have you granted yourself permission to the share? remember that local permissions are not the same as remote permissions.

You would do this through server manager. Select the server you want to access, go to Computer|Shared Directories and then create a share and grant yourself permissions.

There are several NT settings you need to check to ensure a shared resource.

Background.
NT4/2K makes file sharing easier but has increased the security protocals for
both OSs.

One of the reasons you cannot access a shared NT resource is because NT requires you to LOGIN from any outside station.  To fix this, here is what you do:

1) On the NT machine, create a user account/profile.  Make sure you write down the username exactly has you type it in.
2) Make that user an administrator and ensure that the user name is part of the administrators group.
3) Sharing: add NEW shares to all your drives with the username you created.
4) On the 95/98 Machine:  "Logoff as current user" or "Close all programs protocals are set correctly.and logon as a different user."
5) logon as the user you created on the NT machine.

and it should work if all your network

There is an easier way to do this, but it takes a lot longer to explain.

Need further assistance, email me.

Cheers
