    about \\computer\ipc$

    I connected two computers by a hub. One computer has win2000 pro and the other has winme on it. when I tried to access win2000 from winme, it showed me some information like: \\computer\ipc$ and asked password. what is the password and how to take that password off, I didn't set any password. anyone please give me some suggestion? thanks.
    I\'d found my best love, but I didn\'t treasure her. I felt regretful after that. It\'s the ultimate pain in the world. If God can give me a chance, I will tell her three word: \"I love you\". If God wanna give me a time limit, I\'ll say this love will last 10 thousand years!

    You have to setup a user account on the win2000 box with the name of the user account you use on the winme box and use the same passwords on both boxes...

    well it looks like ipc$ is the share your trying to access. I've never heard of windows automatically assignin passwords. Chech the share proprties on the drive you are trying to access. Did you buy the computers from someone other than a retailer? If so then perhaps there were previous share settings with a password.

    Well the first thing you need to do is get the winme computer to a NTFS file system because Im not sure that a fat32 comuputer can access a NTFS share...... or what you can do is set up a drive that is a fat32 volume on the win2k box and share that.The reason is win2k can see a ntfs and a fat volume and winme(9*) can only see Fat volumes...But as far as the password goes if the user has right to the share then no password box will come up at all.

    Hope I helped.

    To access an ipc$ share, you have to be a domain admin (if I remember correctly). So the win2k box is looking for a login from the admin. You need an account on the 2k box with the same name as your login on the ME box, and make sure you have filesharing on....

    btw, ME sucks when it comes to networks....

    a_420_hacker_24 > actually win98 can see NTFS shares just fine, because I have a w2kpro computer on a lan with two win98 machines, and they all see each other just fine.

    yeah,
    ammo has just answered the question>>
    You have to setup a user account on the win2000 box with the name of the user account you use on the winme box and use the same passwords on both boxes.

    thanks all,

    I know there are some share files or folders with "$" sign in win2k by default, usually people can not see them. there should be a way to cancel those "sharing", I saw some people did that before, but at that time I didn't pay attention to that and now I want to know how to get off those "sharing", but can not find the way!

    You're right on the ipc$ account issue, but another way to bypass the check is to enable the guest account on the NT/2K box. Safe? Depends on your network config. But it'll work ;O) BTW, IPC$ is the hidden InterProcessCommunications share. If you don't have a valid account on the system when trying to open a share, the box checks to see if the guest account is enabled. If it is, you get in with guest access. If it isn't, it asks for a valid account name and password for the IPC service (which don't really exist, as IPC is a service account). Just a tech description of why IPC$ is popping up. Sorry I'm long winded...

    True, enabling guest also works...
