How do I find the IPC password?

How do I find out the password for trying to access a shareable computer resource on a Windows NT network? Specifically the dialog box that asks for the "IPC" password?

You can't know the IPC password. If you need access to a shared resource, you need to have a user account in the domain or a user account on the system sharing the resource. Additionally your user account must be granted access to connect to that resource over the network.
