How To.. Win95/Win98/WinNT/WinMe Enable PlainTextPassword by ramani
Posted: 5 Jun 01


FOR Win95/98/Me Units
=====================


In order to connect Win98/Win95 workstations to a Linux Server, we may have to enable Plain Text Password in Windows Operating System. The method to set this in Windows 95/98 OS is given below:

In Win95/98/Me units

1. Run Registry Editor (Regedit.exe). To do this
Click on Start | Run | Open: [regedit]

2. Click on the + sign to open the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following key:

\system\currentcontrolset\Services\VxD\VNETSUP

3. From the Edit menu, select new DWORD value.

4. Change the name of the new key from "New Value #1" to "EnablePlainTextPassword".

5. Modify the entry just added (go to the Edit menu and select Modify), to have the following value:

Value data: 1

6. Click OK and then quit the Registry Editor.

7. Shut down and restart Windows 95/98/Me computer

You should now be able to connect to a SAMBA computer, if the samba configuration contains PlainTextPassword. Note that some versions of the SAMBA has this as default. Some versions have the Password Encryption as the default.  
==================================================================

FOR WinNT Units
===============


Same as above .. except Step (2)

2. Click on the + sign to open the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following key:

\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Rdr\Parameters
