But that is what I am asking. How do you log into the NT Domain over
the internet ??
What do I need to do to;
1/. The server to enable the ability to accept conenctions from the
remote machines.
2/. The workstation (Remote PC (WIN95)), how does it need to be
configured to;
a) find the NT Host/Domain
b) logon and connect to the NT Host.
