Win 7 w/s access to files on Win NT box
Posted on 2013-10-08
Recently needed to update WinXP workstations to Win 7 for a CAD update. When moving to Win 7, I am unable to connect to file shares on a mold machine that is controlled by a WinNT client. Both devices are on the same subnet and workgroup. Each of them can see each other on the network. However, when I try to set up a shortcut to the shared folder on the WIN NT box, I am asked for a userID/password, that I promptly complete, but inevitably fails.
Error reports "Logon failure; unknown username or bad password.
I can create links to this directory on XP or 2000 any day of the week.
Is my problem in the Advanced Sharing? Are the UID/Pass being sent with encryption and the NT box cannot decipher this?
I've tried most of the settings under Advanced Sharing, but I can't find a working solution to push files to the NT box.
I know this is a long shot - hardly anyone has any NT stuff anymore. Anyone have a suggestion? - Thanks.
