Hi

How can I force WIndows XP to reauthenticate using a different set of
credentials? (using PEAP-EAP-MSCHAPV2)

Disconnecting and reconnecting the network connection does not work.
Rebooting does not work. It uses the logon credentials by default, even
though I have unchecked "Automatically use my Windows logon name and
password (and domain if any)"

NB this is a wired connection, not wireless.

Regards

Hi Chris,

Did you ever get an answer to your question. I believe that we are
having similar issues. here is my post:

*********************************************

Thanks for the suggestion, but I am already getting an access denied
situation.

I need a login box to allow me to login with different username and
password.

Also, while we are connecting to an SMB server it is a Mac OSX Server.

I need a client only solution, i.e. no server changes are allowed.

I just dont want the machine to pass the local username and password
when attempting to connect to \\server1\share.

We have tried setting the following local security policy to disabled:

1. Network Access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET passports
for network authentication.

2. Microsoft Network Client: Send unencrypted password to third-party
SMB servers.
