JSI Tip 3182. The domain password you supplied is not correct, or access to your logon server has been denied?

One reason for the subject error message is the use of the IPX protocol in a Windows 2000 domain, or mixed mode domain, with W9x clients.

NOTE: If you have a mixed mode domain, the problem may be intermittent. If the LOGONSERVER is a Windows NT 4.0 BDC, the problem does not occur.

To fix this behavior, use any of the following:

- Use another protocl instead of IPX.

- Upgrade the W9x computer to Windows 2000.

- Add NetBIOS support to the IPX protocol on the W9x client, and disable direct hosting.

To disable direct hosting on a W9x client:

01. Use Regedit to navigate to:


02. Select VNETSUP.

03. Press New on the Edit menu.

04. Press String Value.

05. Right-click the new Value Name and press Rename.

06. Type Directhost and press Enter.

07. Right-click Directhost and press Modify.

08. Type 0.

09. Press OK.

10. Exit Regedit.

11. Restart your W9x client.
