Connecting to SBS from pre-Windows xp
Posted on 2006-06-16
I have a small business server set up at a clients site. There are 5 XP home machines, which i will be upgrading shortly to XP Pro so i can get them on the domain. They also have a Windows ME machine, and one 98 machine. These will be off the network soon. Right now everything is on a workgroup, except the SBS, which is running AD and on the domain.
I have created a share on the SBS for user files. I can get to this share fine on the XP home machines, but not on the ME or 98 machines. When i type in \\servername\sharename, i get a box that comes up saying please enter network password.
Ex: share name on SBS is "icm"
type in "\\servername\icm"
The dialog box comes up labeled "Enter Network Password". Inside it it says "You must supply a password to make this connection".
I dont believe this is any password that corresponds to the server. Is this password something to do with that of the local machine?
