I just checked in changes to the head brach that fixes
these problems.

The two problems were that smbclient wasn't doing the
NT password hashing (it is now) and also wasn't correctly
looking at the 'workgroup=' parameter in smb.conf (it
does now :-).

cvs update & it should work (it does here).



Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
