We're doing something similar. The answers, if you are connecting to Win
95/NT, are in the _Client Access for Windows 95/NT - Setup_ manual
(SC41-3512-02 is the one I have). You need to have password caching active.

I just found out that if, when you take the 'Remote Command' tab of Client
Access properties, you get a Control Panel message saying 'Cannot access
password cache', you should delete any *.pwl files in c:\windows (Win 95,
at least). These are the password files for each user set up on your
machine. Mine were messed up, deleting them took care of things.
