How to bypass Network Login

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So my dad is calling me from his job asking me if I know how to bypass a network login. It seems the had a computer connected to a server and they login into the server but instead of checking the password locally it authenticates over the server. So the server is down and they can't login and they want to login locally. Is their any way they could do this? The computer is running Windows 95.

Im no network expert...

But from experience i dont think that it is possible due to the the fact that the PC is pulling data from the Active directory on the server, so no server, no information (login details) can be pulled by the workstation.

Sorry

On XP where I work, the computers only need to logon once, the logon is then cached, so even if the server goes down/the machine looses network, it can login via local cached credentials. Thats how the school issued laptops work. They are on the domain, the kids only have to log on once at school, then they can log on all they want at home. Im not sure how 95 handles it though.

Since it is probably an active directory setup; he could try safe mode and create a account locally.

Safe mode can be found by pressing F8 while the computer is booting first into the OS.

If the network login is not cached, you could login to the machine locally provided there is a local account configured and you dad knows (and is authorized to use) the local account credentials.

This is really something that he should be discussing with the IT department of the organization he works for. Corporate IT security is in place for a reason. Attempting to bypass the organization's security standards could be misconstrued as misuse or malevolent behavior. Just a heads up!
At long last...

Hi,

This is actually something very similar to what I found where I've been working... I'm one of the IT users, but as I'm only a temp I haven't been given admin rights...

Basically, in my situation the laptop had been 'dropped' from the domain as it hadn't connected for more than the 'timeout' period - although I had logged onto it before. When I tried to log on with it sitting in the docking station (everything attached) I was unable to log in - even though I was able to on any other machine.

What I did to "bypass" the issue was to disconnect the LAN cable from the docking station and log in using the cached credentials, then re-attach the LAN cable (just in time for the logon scripts to be started and map drives etc) and then I was able to work as I would usually...



Having said that, if the IT dept are worth anything, they should be able to get ppl working pretty quickly - although the situation you mention is a reason to have multiple DCs (Domain Controllers) in the LAN...

Let us know how you/he gets on...
