win98 dialup to winNT domain
Posted on 2003-02-20
In the office we have a NT server which has user accounts for the staff.
The desktops (& laptops in docking stations) run either win2000/XP or win98. All the desktops start with a windows logon box asking for username,password,domain.
When operating out of the office from laptops, a win2000 user can dial the office using dialup networking, as you would for the internet etc - and when the connection is established it automatically logs them onto the domain and runs their logon script (which maps drives etc).
However, the win98 laptops do not seem to be communicating with the domain - after they have connected via dialup they do not have the mapped drives, ie the logon script is not running. I'm guessing the win98 machine is not logging onto the domain.
How do i setup the win98 machine so that it is authorised by the domain and runs the logon script? When connected to the office LAN the win98 machine works fine on the domain.
