dial up connection, xp pro to win2k

I'm trying to use pc-pc dial up connection, xp pro on 1, win 2k on another.  no vpn or other security used, just "dial up to another computer" on the xp and "accept incoming" on win2k.  I do this with a couple dozen remote sites with win2k on both ends.

modems, username and password verify, but then it says it needs domain, and gives me a dialog to enter username, password and domain.  I'm not using a domain on either computer, left blank on xp, both computers are just part of workgroup.
