|I have two computers, one is using windows XP and the other is using NT4. They are connected together by a crossover cable and I have a static IP assigned to each. I have a folder shared on the windows XP computer. I am able to map this share as a drive on the windows NT computer and everything works fine. When I restart the windows NT computer, it is set to login automatically and when it is starting windows it displays a box that says, "restoring network connection to \\x.x.x.x\share". It stays on that for about 2 minutes until it finally gives the error: |
"an error occurred while reconnecting F: to \\x.x.x.x\share
Microsoft Windows Network: The requested resource is in use.
This connection has not been restored."
If I click on the drive after windows has started, the drive reconnects just fine, but I need it to do this automatically. Also, if I hold shift when windows NT is starting, so it will show the login prompt, and log in as the same user that automatically logs in, it works just fine. It only doesn't work when it automatically logs in.
Some information about the share: I set up a local administrator user on the windows XP computer that has the same user name and password as the user that automatically logs on the windows NT computer. Full rights to the share were given to this user. On the windows NT computer I tell it to connect to the share using this user name and password.
Because of what this computer is used for, I need it to automatically log in and reconnect to this share. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
