The NT server is looking for an Administrator level password. The login

this login must have Adminstrator priviliges to access IPC$ (interprocess
communication). You could enter the Adminstrator password and make this
connection but you probably don't want everyone to have this level of

You should:
1) Add the user in NT
2) Create a new share for drive C
3) Give User privileges to this new share
