I am able share files and folder on A and B, but not C. When I try to connect to A or B from C, I am asked for a password. The message box displays "You must supply a password to make this connection" and also the following info: Resources: VICS133IPC$, Password:
I know what VICS133 is, which is the name of computer B I am trying to connect to, but the request and IPC$ baffles me. Would you know why it is asking for a password and how to prevent it from asking for a password?
If I am wrong, take a look in the Windows help file and search for User Level Security. Once that is done, log in to the Windows 95 machine using a username and password that exists on the Win2k and WinNT machines. That way the Win95 machine will pass the information automatically to the other machines.
