Samba 3.0 won't work with smbclient using Kerberos.

I am trying to get smbclient to work with Samba 3.0 server. Samba 3.0 server
joined a Win2k Native domain successfully.

Two sample Kerberos applications on the machine (on which Samba runs) talk
to each other successfully using Win2K as the KDC.

I am trying to use the smbclient program to get a list of available shares
from samba server. It gives me the following error.

KDC has no support for encryption type.

Interestingly, I made and account on the KDC for the unix machine (using
ktpass) and specified enc type DES-CBC-MD5, which is used by smbclient. Also
I checked that the encryption type is MD5 for the TGT.

I have no clue whats going on. Any help is appreciated.
