i am currently ignoring it. as the access is denied, it's not a problem.

oh, i think you got me wrong, likely due to my questioning :)

my samba does run on a dedicated (hardware) linux machine, not in a vm.

but if the windows client has a VMWare installed, the win client cannot
login to that samba linux-host with stated error messages.
the daemons are actually bound to eth0 only on the samba server.

any hint?
