JSI Tip 10102. When you use Remote Desktop Sharing in NetMeeting to connect to a remote Windows NT-based computer, you are repeatedly prompted for logon credentials?

You will experience the subject behavior if the local Administrator account on the computer that is running the Remote Desktop Sharing (RDS) service has a blank or null password.

To resolve this issue, set a password for the local Administrator account on the computer that is running the RDS service:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window on your computer.

2. Using CryptPwd.exe, type:

CryptPwd -u Administrator -m \\RDSComputer -P NewPassword

Where:

RDSComputer is the computer that is running the RDS service.

NewPassword is the password that you wish to set.
NOTE: -P must be capitalized.

3. Restart NetMeeting.

4. When prompted for credentials, type Administrator and the NewPassword.
