Are you sure that Win 95 can't deal with Encrypted passwords?

I run a Win 95 950B system here (under VMware :-), and it deals with
encrypted passwords quite well, and I do not have the vredir upgrade

While I may be wrong, I think that Win95 of all versions can deal with
encrypted passwords.

One way to check is to grab Ethereal ( and grab a trace of a
Win95 box trying to log onto a Samba server that uses encrypted passwords,
and then look at the sessionsetupandX request to see whether or not the
password is plaintext or encrypted?
