Tested this on three different wrkst with two different client versions. The client versions are and On all wrksts user logs on with wrkst only checked. I check the connections using the client properties and it displays there are no connections. The odd thing that happens is this. There is a short cut on the desktop that is launches a app that resides on a nw 6.5 sp 5 server. As soon as the shortcut is executed, the user is authenticated and can access the resource. The user is never prompted to authenticate to the server.

My questions are:

Why does this happen?

What do I need to change to force users to authenticate?
