Not exactly.

I was told that with Windows NT you can have different userids on the
network and the 400 and it will prompt you for the login to the 400.  This
is working correctly on the NT machine I tried.  But for Windows 95/98 you
MUST have the same userid on the AS/400 that you use to sign onto the
network in order to access the AS/400 server from the network side.  If you
have the same userid, but a different password, it will prompt you for the
correct password.  This is not working, whether I put in the AS/400
password, or the network password, I get an invalid password error.

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
