Cleartext is used by Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95 and Windows NT
Encryption is used by Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2 (OSR2), Windows 98,
Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 SP3 and Windows 2000.
1) Patch the Windows 95 Machine
2) Get the other 2 Machines to send Cleartext as follows :
Start RegEdit and go to key
Create a new DWORD key named EnablePlainTextPasswords with a value of 01 and
restart the PC
Disclaimer : I've only tried option 2 above on W95 machines. Don't know if
it works on W98.
