I have a freshly installed W2k system which must have access to a Linux
server through Samba (2.2.3, Debian woody). This is not a domain or
whatever, just a simple workgroup. It works very good between this server
and a W98, and between the server and another Linux. There is no encrypted
password, all plain text (personal network), I've set
EnablePlainTextPassword to 1 in Regedit on W2k.
When trying to connect through the Explorer, the W2k claims that the
account is not authorized to access to connect to the server, although user
and pwd are the same as on other systems. If I change (as a test only)
'encrypted passwords = yes', the Explorer at least shows that he has found
I don't know much more on SMB, and Google seems to deliver only advices on
Thanks in advance for any information !
