Q

Can I use just TCP/IP to join a Windows 95 PC to an NT4 PDC?

When joining a Windows 95 PC to an NT4 PDC, can I just use TCP/IP as the only protocol? Or do I have to add NetBEUI to make the Win95 PC talk to the NT4 PDC?
You can use TCP/IP as the only protocol. In fact, you're better off limiting the number of protocols, services and clients that you install so that they don't unnecessarily impact performance. Also, I recommend an upgrade, since Windows 95 is no longer fully supported and you're lagging behind the technology by more than just a few versions.
