Chapter 35. Connecting to an Existing Ne... > Choosing Your Primary Network Logon

Choosing Your Primary Network Logon

Windows 98 provides the mechanisms to connect to different types of providers on a network. In this chapter, you learn how to set up your Windows 98 workstation to connect to Microsoft Windows NT servers and workstations, to Novell NetWare servers, and to other Microsoft Windows 98 machines. After you are connected, you'll be able to access shared files and printers. You also learn how to use some of the services provided by Microsoft and Novell. One service they provide is the capability to secure your shared resources by using their native security account databases.

Because Windows 98 provides connectivity with many different network providers, at some point you might need to select a provider to connect to when you log on to your workstation. For example, you might work in a company that uses Microsoft Windows NT servers as a corporate standard. However, your department might have a Novell NetWare server with resources you need to access as well. Or, you might have a laptop on which you want to log on to Windows NT when you're connected locally, but you might want to bypass the logon when you're on the road. You can choose one provider to be your primary network logon. Common choices include Windows Logon, Windows Family Logon, Client for Microsoft Networks, Client for NetWare Networks, and NetWare Client 32.
