Connecting With Multiple Credentials
Last Updated: 29 Sep 2000

Normally, Windows will only accept a single Acct/Pwd pair
for connectivity from machine A to machine B. That is to
say: All of your NET USE statements from LOCALSYS to
REMOTESYS must make use of a single Account and Password.
An "Error 1219" essentially means that you tried to make
a second connection to a resource, but with a different
acct/pwd than the first connection. Type: "NET USE" to
find out what connection you already have established
and break it.
There is an easily exploited loophole which will allow
you to make up to three (3) different connections to a
single remote system -- all with different credentials.
Various versions of Windows allow you connect to a
remote system in the following ways:
• UNC ...... NET USE \\remotesys
• DNS ...... NET USE \\host.domain.com
• IP ....... NET USE \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
• In order to use DNS, be sure to configure your machine
to "Use DNS for Windows Resolution".
• Win9x machines can connect via IP address as Long as
DUN 1.3 or higher is installed.
