Using MS UAM on a network that lacks AppleTalk

I've got a OS9 machine trying to connect to some mac folders on a w2k domain box.

I have one other Mac (OS9) that connects fine.  This one always says bad password/login when I try to login.

I'm using Chooser to connect to the server, but I seem to remember another method... is there?

Also, this network blocks the AppleTalke protocol.

Bad login/pass usually means a mistyped name or password, or there's a space or some other odd character in it on the server.

In OS 9 the chooser is one method, but if Appletalk traffic is blocked you have to use AppleShare over IP, enabled in the filesharing control panel and type the IP of the server via the chooser.

You can also use the Network Browser. It's a bit dodgy in OS 9 though.

Ok, so it is actually connecting.

As an experiment, copy the OS 9 folder from the currently working machine, to one of the others. Rename the old system folder temporarily. Boot off the new one and see if it works. If it does, it's a software issue. If it doesn't it's a network/routing issue.
