Hi, I've been trying to figure out how to log on from my xp box to the samba server running on a redhat 9.0 box.
Everything seems proper, I can access locally from the linux box and
the xp can see the samba server too. When I double click from the work group, it prompts for the user name and passwd, so far so good. BUT
I CANNOT LOGON!
The log file prints out the following:
[2003/12/23 01:26:45, 2] smbd/password.c:pass_check_smb(575)
pass_check_smb failed - invalid password for user [solo]
[2003/12/23 01:26:45, 1] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(1001)
Rejecting user 'solo': authentication failed
I am using exactly the same user and passwd from linux to access the samba server, and it works from there.
Here is my smb.conf, the passwd was generated using smbpasswd
I've googled all around, nobody else seem to have this problem, so I
must be doing something very wrong. Also the XP box does not require
a passwd to logon, just in case it matters.
any help is greatly appreciated, thx,
