Re: Logging in to netbios server
Yes........ I have tried that, Robert, but to no avail. This got rid of the
'machinename', but it still adds the "\" and that is apparently enough to
mess up my login. I'm thinking there must be 'some' way of editing this, or
forcing windows to drop the machinename. I suppose Vista is defaulting for
connection to a 'domain', but isn't helping me out, one bit!
Thank you for the reply...........
