Win2k Permissions

Last Modified: 2013-12-05
Trying to logon to W2k server from W98se boxes. The 98 boxes are set up as "windows logon" (with no password) so that no network logon will need to be entered upon restart.  However, when trying to access the server from the 98 boxes, a password box comes up saying:

You must supply a password to make this connection:
Resource:  \\Server\IPC$

I don't know what the password could be, since one was never set up.  Must be a permissions setting in W2k.
