Hey guys,

Trying to find how Windows deals sends userID\password in distributed
network environment for share. E.g. lets say I've:

AD group managed on one server
Server with files with share: c:\data\YuriFiles with exclusive rights to my
AD ID - Yuri
When I'm going on a share how is my userID & password are send for
authentication to AD? - encrypted or clear text. If encrypted what level of
encryption is used?

Thanks,

Yuri
