	Hello every body

I have a beginner problem.

I try to install samba on a Vax and, simply, exchange shares with PC under
WNT4 witch is connected to a WNT4 server architecture.

I try several configuration but I still having the same problem :

When I browse the VAX, it ask me a username and a password.

At the end, I try to enter an username in the smbpasswd.dat file but nothing

Here the result of smbpasswd command :

Thanks for the help
