JSI Tip 0839. No domain controller or error 709 when W9x client connects via RAS.

The subject messages can happen if the W9x client passes the wrong credentials.

Possible solutions are:

- When creating a phone book entry on W9x, keep user name, password and domain empty to cause a prompt for the proper credentials.

- Edit the W9x registry and set:

     HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RemoteAccess\Profile\<connection name>\Domain


     HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RemoteAccess\Profile\<connection name>\Username
