  1. Connect the Turbo NAS via ssh (port 22, enabled by default) or telnet (port 13131, disabled by default) and add the command below to Global section of smb.conf under /mnt/HDA_ROOT/.config by vi command.
    lanman auth = yes
    client lanman auth = yes
  2. Run the following commands to copy settings and restart samba.
    # cp /mnt/HDA_ROOT/.config/smb.conf /etc/default_config/
    # /etc/init.d/smb.sh restart
  3. Enter the web administration page and select [Access Right Management] > [Users] > select the users that will use Windows 98 to connect the NAS and click [Change Password].
  4. Input the password for the Windows 98 users and click OK.
  5. Login to Windows 98 with the same username/password on the Turbo NAS.
