Easy, you get sombody else to make up the challange and check the
response. This is how 'security=server' (soon to be auth order = ...
smbserver ...) works.
OR you make up the challange yourself and use a trust account of some
kind to show both it and the password to the server for a yea/nea.
(like security=domain, soon to be auth order = ... ntdomain... ).
