Now I remember...
There were traces of this. Do you still have a pointer? I'm interested,
because this combination isn't supposed to work in general. I had some
older traces (probably lost now) from Andrew Bartlett that showed the
client sending Extended Security with DOS status codes, and a W2K server
sent back a garbled DOS error code.
I think I sent this before, but see the !Alert box here:
Anyway, my guess is that we assumed that this indicated that the
combination was "invalid" from W2K's point of view.
I'd really like to see a trace of this against a W2K server.
Hmmm... Mebee someone at Microsoft has been reading my book. ;)
