Looks like the PocketPC 2003 doesn't like the reply from out
negprot. Can you send an ethereal capture trace of this device
talking to a Win2k/NT server and a similar capture of it failing
to access Samba ? Once we see where we're different it should be
relatively easy to track down. Either that or someone sends me
a PocketPC to test with :-).
