I have a small network where I work and for reasons I'd rather not state, use 3 different workgroups. However, one machine has the network printer on it, but all machines must access it. There are also files on one system that must be accessed from time to time by another machine on either the same or a different workgroup. Manually logging into the other machines is no problem. I click on the workgroup, then the machine in the workgroup, wait for the login box and log in. However, I would like to simplify this. Is there a script that can be run during bootup that will automatically log that particular machine into the workgroup so when I need to access it, it's there already to go?

Any assistance provided would be greatly appreciated.

You'll have to give us a bit more to go on before we can help you. As I'm sure you can understand, we have a duty to protect people, since we are here to help. We have had, a few times in the past, less than honest people who wanted our "help" for not-so-good reasons. :whistling: For that reason, we tend to get leery when someone asks for help with things like this.

Even though your reasons may be perfectly legit, the next person who reads this thread may not be so noble. It's a fine line, you know?
