Remote Login Problem

Remote Login Problem

While dialing remotely into a BCM, with correct passwords and settings, the PPP on this one particular system is requiring a domain name. This unit is not connected to any computer network. I cannot proceed unless I have provide a domain name. Trying to trick the system does no good. Anybody have this problem before and can share their solution would be greatly appreciated.



RE: Remote Login Problem

Things that might help:

1. Try to use the BCMs hostname as domain name when dialing into the system.

2. Check dial-up settings on your pc. Maybe "Use domain logon" or somethin like that is checked.

3. Change the workgroup name of the BCM

RE: Remote Login Problem

Without FQDN you would use the IP address of the BCM on your dial-up connection, it is under your user name and password screen depending on OS.

Thanks guys, I will give it a go.
