I've a *ix machine and I need to share some folders with Windows users. I use samba for this purposes. Samba is set-up and works fine. All windows users use one id to mount (net use) samba drive. But the problems is that when user tries wrong password 3(or more) times this account is locked up. Since there are too many users that are accessing the server, account is being locked up very frequently. On the other hand security policy doesn't allow guest sharing (sharing by not requiring password) and it doesn't allow increasing number of trials before locking account. Do you have any kind of ideas about solving this? We're ready even to put some intermediate machines if needed. If I can't solve this the we'll have to copy whole content to new machine, periodically.
