Connecting NT workstation to network

Connecting NT workstation to network

Connecting NT workstation to network

I am trying to connect a Windows NT 4.0 workstation PC onto our corporate network. The PC in question has had another use in the past, and the Client for Microsoft Networks is not in the list.

Re-installing NT is not an option as there is software on the PC that cannot be re-installed.

How can I regain access to the client, as the person who originally set it up is not available.

RE: Connecting NT workstation to network

First logon on as an Administrator if you

If not have the administrator give you access
to that computer.

If you get in, under 'Start' then 'Programs'
you should see a tab that says 'Administrator'

Under 'Administrator' you should have more options
one should say 'User Groups'

Once you get into 'User Groups' set up that machine
as a user for the group you are trying to have access

It might take some time but this should lead you in
the right direction.
