When Remote Access Clients connect to a Windows NT 4.0 Remote Access
Server (RAS) computer without specifying a domain name, the local domain
will by default be used to authenticate the username and password.
A change has been made in Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 3 that allows the
administrator to specify the domain used to log on such users by setting a
parameter in the registry. To set this parameter, complete the following
- Start Registry Editor and go to the following subkey:
- Choose Edit Value from the Edit menu and use the following information:
Value Name: DefaultDomain
Data Type: REG_SZ
Value: DomainName (not longer than 15 chars)
- Restart the computer for the new setting to take effect.
