When a client attempts to connect to either a Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me) dial-up server, the client may receive the following error message:
Error 629: You have been disconnected from the computer you dialed. Double-click the connection to try again.
This behavior can occur when either the Windows Me or Windows 98 Second Edition computer is configured to enable the dial-up server to use passthrough authentication (user-level security) to authenticate and to connect dial-up clients to a NetWare server. The dial-up server has the Require encrypted password option enabled.
To work around this behavior, you can use either of the following methods:
Method 1For both Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows Me dial-up server computers, you can use this easy method; however, it can cause Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) to be used, which you do not want if your system needs a high level of security.
To use this method, follow these steps:
Method 2This method only works on Windows 98 Second Edition-based computers. To use this method, perform the following steps:
When user-level security is used to authenticate users by means of passthrough authentication on a Netware Bindery services server through a Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, or Windows Me dial-up server, and the Require encrypted password option is enabled for the dial-up server, Shiva Password Authentication Protocol (SPAP) is the authentication protocol used. If the Require encrypted password option is not enabled, Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) is used. PAP is not secure and uses plain text for passwords.
