Secrets of Mastering the Windows 98 Environment: Security and the Windows 98 Dial-Up Server

When using Dial-Up Networking, securing the resources on the server-side of the connection is always a good idea. With Windows 98, for example, you can configure a password that is required for the remote user to connect to the Windows 98 Dial-Up Server. In this case you have two choices for protecting the Windows 98 Dial-Up Server: share-level or user-level security.

When using share-level security, you assign a password on the Windows 98 Dial-Up Server. To gain access to the server, the user must furnish the password. When the secure connection is made, the user browses resources on the Windows 98 Dial-Up Server, with the resources being protected by share-level security. For this method of security to work well, the passwords required for resource access must be kept secret. Unfortunately, secrecy is difficult to maintain when the resource in question is accessed frequently. In that case, with many users having to know the password, the frequency of a security breach is greater.
