Hi Jerry

I tried with the CVS version and tried connecting from a win95 PC to a winNT share
and it didn't give me any hopefully this solves my account expired problem.
....further testing is onn...and will keep you updated

I don't know why it didn't work with the rpm version (samba-2.2.0-20010417.i386)
 which i used earlier on my redhat 6.2

Sorry for the cross-posting....

I have seen a few reports of people who said that their win9x clients
could not access shares on Windows NT/2k members servers of a Samba
controlled domain.  The specific error message was "This account is
expired" or something similar.

I have not been able to reproduce this with the latest SAMBA_2_2 source
code (no ./configure options).  Can people who originally reported this
test the latest CVS code and let me know.

Here's a message for reference....

Cheers, jerry
