Acesss win2k share from win98

When accessing a share from a win2k machine by a 9x
machine, on some machines I get a request for a pwd for
user ipc$. On other 9x accessing the same win2k share I
don't. It makes no difference if I use unc or ip for the
share.

How do I consistantly access the win2k share from 9x
clients?

For each win9x user account (username/password), create an identical win2k
account (username/password)

That was it. I had a local account to the win2k
workstation but not a domain account from the same
machine. Once I create a account by authenticating to the
domain server, all was well. So I need more than a local
account in my case (domain as well).

Thanks for your very quick response

9x windows systems operated with the NetBUIE PROTOCOL.
You must go to the Win2K network protocols and add the
NetBUIE protocol to the rest of your protocols list. Even
if you got the same group name on all of your clients,
that won't let you make them communicate. I was reading
an article about win2k and 9x systems and that is what it
said. I just got a job and my new project is to put 6
computers in a network environment. I like to know if I
can network all 6 win2k systems and have them share a
printer. If you know how, please let me know. thank you
so much. Hope this helps.
