JSI Tip 1741. Cannot connect to a Password-Protected share on a W9x computer?

When you try to connect to a W9x share from Windows NT or Windows 2000 that is not in the same domain or in a workgroup, you are prompted for a User Name and Password.

If the W9x computer is using share-level access control with a Password-Protected share, it does not understand your access credentials.

To access this share, enter <W9x_Computer_name>\administrator as the User Name and enter the correct password for the share.
