?Use a script instead of a password file

Hi Luke (et al.),

Sorry for the 'script' confusion. I didn't mean the "login script". I
would like Samba to use my Perl script to check passwords at our central
user database instead of the smbpasswd file. I need to validate logins
on our semi-public NT workstations.

B.t.w. Since Samba can check the NT-passwords against its one-way
encrypted smbpasswd file, I assume Samba does decrypt the password it
gets from NT workstations, right?
