    Username/Password for default-shares

    hi!

    with which username/passwort - combination can u get remote-access on a default share of nt-based os's (i.e winXP) ? i tried a username and password of a normal account (with admin-rights) and the "Administrator" username but both didnt work.

    use the format:

    mycomputername\username

    Assuming of course that this is your computer to play with.... Otherwise...... Go away.... Your mother was a hampster and your father smells of elderberries........

    Hey, I got the Monty Python part right. I just couldn't remember the movie, it's been a while since I watched one.

    Hey, and thanks for the "young'uns" comment, it makes my stiff back and arthritic knees feels much better.

    Re: Username/Password for default-shares

    with which username/passwort - combination can u get remote-access on a default share of nt-based os's (i.e winXP) ? i tried a username and password of a normal account (with admin-rights) and the "Administrator" username but both didnt work.
    any account in the local "Administrators" group should do - ideally with the "Log on from the Network" user right (which is granted to everybody by default)

    If it doesn't accept administrator, try machinename\administrator (as Tiger Shark suggested)

    By default a domain administrator "Domain Admins" account should work too (although this can be changed)

    Some machines have the default shares disabled by policy - which does not enhance security but is just inconvenient.

    thx for answeres.
    i tried out the things you suggested but somehow it doesnt seem to work.
    example: i work on a pc with winxp on it. i know that another pc in the lan (also winxp) has no password set for the default "Administrator" account.
    with net use i try:

    net use x: \\computername\c$

    then i get: blablabla please enter username for COMPUTERNAME\GUEST: computername\Administrator

    blablabla password: <nothing>

    Username or Password not correct ....


    The same happens if i use the login-username and pwd from that pc (ex: john:smith)

    thx for answeres

    Instead of using the command line, right click on My Network Places and search for the NetBIOS name of the computer (ex: Charlie_the_Tuna), once you see it, double click and enter valid account info and see what happens.
