    Map a network drive

    I am trying to map a network drive but it keeps asking for a password, but I do not have a password set,

    any ideas where I can start looking please.

    Thanks

    Re: Map a network drive

    Can you access it otherwise - i.e. unmapped and without needing a password?

    Is this on a domain or workgroup?
    What OS is the drive-to-be-mapped on?

    Re: Map a network drive

    I assume that the machine you're on is Win98 since that's where you posted, but what about the share you're trying to map - is it an XP machine per chance? If so, I believe the XP machine will need some adjustments. If the machine you're on does NOT use a password, you'll have to make two changes to the XP machine. Create a user account with the same name as the one you're using on the Win98 machine. Then you need to make a change to Policies to allow users without passwords. Of course, if the machine is NOT an XP machine, forget everything I just said..... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Map a network drive

    Hi Leif

    I don't think I was to clear about this, because I am not doing it myself it is an enginer in the field,
    this is a PC connecting to CNC controlled Glass Processing machine, he has tried deleting any passwords by *.pwl but he cannot find any.

    However he is asked for a password when he tries to map a network drive to the CNC controller.

    Is there anyway he could remove any and all passwords on the Windows 98 PC

    Re: Map a network drive

    Are you saying the CNC controller is a PC running W98 - so that to all extents and purposes you are trying to map a W98 to a W98?

    Hi Lief

    That's correct, the connection if we could access the map a network drive would be Map F: //nc0001 but because of the password request we can't get this far.

    OK - but as asked before:

    Can you access it otherwise - i.e. unmapped and without needing a password?

    Is this on a domain or workgroup?
