I really could use a hand setting up samba on an IRIX workstation.

I have followed the Diagnosing link:

noticed that at test 3, I am prompted for a password (which is
inconsistent with the guide)

no password works, although if I type return at the password prompt, I
get through...

flounder 2# ./smbclient -L flounder
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Domain=[FITCH] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.6]

        ---------            -------
        FITCH                REDFISH

I can then go on to test 8 and I stop there.

from a DOS Prompt on a winnt client, i type net view \\flounder and get
an error message as follows:

c:\net view \\flounder

System 5 error has occurred.

Access is denied.


please advise.

Thank you
