We may have something. On \\YELOW-TOWER sharing says users must have user acct and PW to share. On \\FAM-LAPTOP people without can.

Changed LAPTOP to mathc TOWER (I also changed to 128 bit same as TOWER). I've been through these things so many times I can't believe I missed it.

Viola! I think it's working. Do you know what will happen if I save my credentials? will I get the choice to use different account?

Well, I just tried it and it seems to always log on using the credentials I saved. Not a big problem though, because those credentials can be deleted in the credentials manager.

Excellent point! That sounds great. I was wondering if we would have to click through everytime we connected. And also, what about PW change. simply deleting and re-establishing sounds like the best of all words.

Thanks you for all your help. Is there any feedback or rating system here?
