  1. On a Compaq Deskpro EX C733 PC an "No domain server was available to
    validate your password" error message is generated when a user tries to log
    on to the Microsoft network. The PC is running Windows 98 SE, all TCP/IP
    properties are default (dynamic), the client for Windows networking "log on
    to domain" is checked, the connection is established remotely via a VPN
    client (Cisco). At start-up the login is cancelled, the VPN client is
    started and it triggers a Network login screen where username, password and
    domain name are entered. Then the error message occurs.
    The VPN connection itself succeeds and it is possible to map a network drive
    manually, but of course no server side login script is executed.

    On an other machine (a very old Tulip) under exactly the same software and
    connection conditions (same DSL connection, same client side SMC router,
    even same cable, same user, same password), no error message is generated,
    the login is working fine, the login script is executed as expected.
    So, apparently it's a client side problem.
    How can I troubleshoot the Compaq?

    Unless the disk drive on the Compaq is a clone of the disk drive on the
    machine that works, the software isn't exactly the same. There's
    probably something in the registry that varies by one or more bits.
    That's one of the joys of working with Windows.
