Problem logging onto Server

When I log onto the server from most workstations in my building, the workstations will go through a succession of dialog boxes trying to log on anyone who has ever logged on from the workstation.  What is the problem?  My workstations are OS9.1 and my server is OS9.2.  I am using Appleshare IP 6.3.  If my question is vague, I'll present it another way. Example Scenario: My client workstation boots. Once the desktop is loaded, the dialog box for Server 1 appears, "Connect to Server 1 as"(the username appears in the text field in the dialog box). Since it does not require a password, I simply click connect.  Everything is fine.  Next, a dialog box for Server 2 appears, asking me to "Connect to Server 2 as"(the username appears in the text field in the dialog box).  When I enter the password, I am asked to "Connect to Server 2 as" for every username  that has ever logged onto my workstation.  Although I enter the correct password, the machine forces me to log in all of the other usernames.  How do I get rid of the usernames? I would like to log onto the server with one attempt.

When a user logs on to a Server via the Chooser, they get an option box which will log that user on automatically upon startup if it's checked. MacOS keeps a list of these in the Servers folder which lives in the System Folder. Take a peek and you'll see a big list of aliases, most of them bases on the name of one server. So when you clear one of the auto login windows, it progresses to the next one until the whole list is done.

All you have to do is delete the aliases in the Servers folder and they won't bother you anymore. Then, when you log on with your username, you can then use the check box to log you on automatically next time the computer reboots. If I were you I'd reboot after deleting the old aliases just to make sure it's all clear first.

It's not a problem sometime what happened when  you mapped the server from the chooser in your desktop and without trash the server you reboot the system then this problem occur.If You want to connect the server after rebooting then you have to select from the chooser and select then click the option inside it.And if u don't want then just remove the alises of server from the server foder which is located  inside your HDD system folder.You can't  attempt the different servers at a single time.Because you have the different user name and password for the servers.
