I have situations where I want to provide access to a DCOM server over a large
network, or perhaps even the Internet. I find that if I enable the guest
account, this will work for many users. But, if the remote user has logged
in to their computer or domain as, for example, user 'jsmith', and if the
DCOM server computer or domain happens to also have an account for user jsmith,
then their passwords must match. This seems to be true whether the guest
account is enabled or not. Indeed, if I create these duplicate accounts,
then I don't need the guest account. This is just as well, since many clients
balk at enabling the guest account, and it is particularly scary to do so
on the Internet. But how can I handle a situation where there are two jsmith's
out there (obviously on two different computers/domains) each with a different
password?
