Samba Help !!!

I am trying to use samba 2.2.6 (Under RedHat 7.3) to replace a NT file

But I would like to have the folder and file security as offered by NT.


I also like to validate the domain users via NT 4.0 SP6a domain.

I am having hard time making it work.


Please help....


My smb.conf file looks like this.




   workgroup = AMSIDOMN

   netbios name = ISLINUX

;   allow trusted domains = yes

;   nt acl support = yes   

   server string = Test Server %v


   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

   max log size = 50

   security = domain  

   password server = *

   encrypt passwords = yes

   smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

   dns proxy = no 

   large readwrite = Yes



#============================ Share Definitions


    comment = Data Folder

    path = /usr/data

    read only = no

    create mask = 0765

    directory mask = 0777

    delete readonly = yes

    writable = yes



Samba server joined the NT domain successfully.

I can view the samba server and the data folder but it still asks me for
user name and password when I am trying to access the data folder.

I would like to maintain the user name and password only on NT domain


Also I would like to optimize this samba server for Microsoft network.


I am not sure what I am doing wrong. 


Forgive me, I am a new user as far as samba and Linux goes.


Thanks in advance,


Rana Huq
