Interesting. Windows 3.1 with the workgroup add-on package (I used
this with DOS) or WFWG 3.11?

Always best to read the Changelog for all of the versions between the
one you were at to the one you're moving to. As you don't mention
versions I can only guess that there was a change in the default
setting of some of these: "lanman auth", "client lanman auth",
"encrypt passwords", "client plaintext auth". There may be others
changes you want/need to be aware of as well.
