You are correct.  I was responding to a different error. 
[blush...another soul damaged by a quick mouse finger]  Sorry.  I can
verify this problem against the main branch as of May 5, 1998.  Am
having my owjn problems with the latest main branch code I am trying to
track down.  You're not alone :)

Actually the problem I was remembering was "Access denied" in that case
you must be logged in an admin type user.  Also unless you have changed
GUEST_SESSETUP in local.h you will need to be connected to the the
server in some way in order to be validated ( ie. net use ... ) because 
"net time \\server" does not prompt for a password.

Again, sorry for the misinformation.
