The Chat application in Windows NT is similar to the Chat application in Windows for Workgroups, except that Windows NT Chat prompts you for a password when you call a machine on a different domain, on which you do not have an account.

After you enter your password, however, you will receive an "invalid password" error message. If you know a user name and the password on the remote domain or machine, you can use the Connect As dialog box to enter that information and communicate with the remote machine. Another option is to log on as a guest if the remote machine has the guest account enabled.

If both domains have the same user name but different passwords, you will not be able to communicate with the other machine.
