Happy New Year, New Century, New Millennium,

I am trying to connect an WinNT workstation (V4 with SP3) to an AS400
(V4R4 with cum 0147) IFS, both are in the same work group. The NT
is logged on to with a valid AS400 user (not sure about password at
this point). The AS400 shows in Network Neighborhood and the shares
show below it. After clicking on a share the password box is filled in
with a valid user and password pair. The box immediately returns
stating that an invalid username or incorrect password was used. The
rest of the network is Win9x and does not have any problems accessing
the shares. I've tried all combinations of text case, changed the
profile to make sure it is enabled and accessible, there are no
messages in QSYSOPR. I've also searched the archives but everything
talks about the log on box showing (as it does) not if it doesn't
work.

Any hints will be much appreciated.

BTW, can the AS400 be used as a network password authority in place of
a WinNT server for users that move from PC to PC and regularly change
passwords? I don't want a user to use PC1, go to PC2 and change their
password (PC & AS400) then go back to PC1 and have to remember the old
password just to get into the PC.

Roger Vicker, CCP
