Network Pop-Up Messages May Be Sent to the Wrong Machine

Q102567



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1





SYMPTOMS

When using Windows NT, network pop-up messages sent to a user name instead of a machine name may not go to the machine that you expect.



CAUSE

If you are signed on to multiple machines with the same user name, a network pop-up message sent to your user name goes to the machine that you logged on to first. All other machines that you log on to with the same user name are unable to register the user name because it is already in use on the network. However, since machine names must be unique, a network pop-up message sent to a specific machine is received by that machine.



MORE INFORMATION

Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Log on to MACHINE1, MACHINE2, and MACHINE3 as Joeuser.
  2. From a different machine, send a network pop-up message to Joeuser.


MACHINE1 receives the message, but the other machines logged on as Joeuser do not.

  1. From a different machine, send a network pop-up message to MACHINE2.


The message is received by MACHINE2.
