    When I try to browse or access shares on a Windows 2003
    server from old windows 95 machines I get a Enter network
    Password dialog box, requesting a password for Resource:
    \\servername\IPC$. I cannot access the shares. Win 98
    pcs are okay. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

  2. assuming this is not domain network, you need to create the same username
    and password on the server.

    make sure client for microsoft networks is installed on
    the win95 machine. Logon when prompted as Domain\user
    with the corresponsing password. The administrator
    password should work too. check the network neighborhood
    for the server. Netbeui is a separate protocol to
    install as well as tcp/ip. Join same workgroup as the
    domain name on the server. (If active directory set up to
    create the domain.)

    Thanks for the post however I'm still stuck. I migrated
    an NT4 domain to Win2003. Currently have 1 2003 domain
    controller and a NT BDC. All user can log on fine and
    access shares on the old NT4 box. Only Windows 95 users
    cannot access shares on the 2003 server although the
    server can be seen when browsing, selecting the server to
    see available shares gives me the access error. I
    reinstalled 95 on a pc and now can't logon to the network,
    I'm told a domain controller is not available. DHCP has
    successfully assigned all network parameters, IP address,
    gateway, wins server, etc. I'm thinking there must be
    something with the logon proccess that is different on
    win95 as compared to 98, NT WS, 200o, and xp. Any further
    suggestions. I've tried loging in with
    domainname\username and password & username and password

  5. if you have domain network, that will be the different story. check the
    network settings and make sure win95 point to the domain. Also an you access
    NT 4? if yes, you may also want to install WINS.

    Try removing all clients from the NT domain, then rejoin them to the
    W2k3. They cannot be in two domains at once. To access both domains at once,
    you need to set up domain trusts.

    Well you are definately stretching the limits of mixed
    mode there. make sure you are loging into the microsoft
    network logon rather than the family logon or something
    else. 2003 server might need the computer's name added
    to the domain users and computers and the permissions on
    the directory allow for access to that computer name.
