I've tried everything i can think of but i can't map a network drive.
Everything else on Samba is working ok. I can log on via the internet to
look at the shares etc (by doing \\ and the processes are
running ok. The /usr/local/samba/var/log.smbd shows (i set the log level to
3 to get more info) :-

carefirst£ tail log.smbd

Don't know why i'm getting these invalid password messages. I've set up a
unix account called it_jbri and i've set up the samba password by running
smbpasswd -a it_jbri. My PC, unix and samba passwords are all set to the
                                                                          The following is what i get if i try to map a network drive (i'm logged in
as it_jbri on my PC). I've created a share called tsup :-


The Samba version i'm running is 2.2.4 on a Sun Solaris 8 unix system

P.S - There's no hurry for any reply as there's no urgency on this.
