does windows upper case only with plaintext passwords ?
( reading man smb.conf it seems so ).
At the moment we knwo all the users have ( or should at last ) all lower case
password. Is there a way to force smbd to try with lowercase first ? I know
that password level=0 will try this a second, but the first try will fail, and
it seems that the authentication problem is the source for the other trouble I
told you we have.
Thank you very much
