This kind of drove me nuts, until I relaized that the password it wanted
was for my Windows login user profile, which just hapened to exist on the
AS/400.

By this I mean, I had a log on on the PC that was KRUSTYC (the network
administrators profile naming convention) and on the AS/400 I used CLOWNK
(my profile naming convention). As it happened I had created a KRUSTYC at
some stage and that was the profile that NetServer was trying to log on to,
not the one i expected it to use (i.e. my "normal" AS/400 signon

Hope this assists

Cheers
