I was able to join my macbook to Samba4 AD using the Directory Utility and
can successfully authenticate as an AD user, but I can¹t join my Windows XP
Pro box to the domain.  I have attached a wireshark pcap dump of the attempt
to join using filter ³not tcp port 3389 and not arp and not udp port 123 and
not broadcast and not multicast².  From what I could tell I see a successful
SRV lookup and a at least partially successful LDAP lookup.  Any assistance
would be much appreciated I will try to stay in the #samba-technical channel
with handle Œaramsey¹ for the rest of the day if you wish to contact me in

Best regards,

P.S.  Sorry for the duplicate accidently sent message early from wrong
e-mail address.  Also, this is purely education, but exciting!
