Dear Samba team,

While testing samba 3.5.8/9/10 I found samba file share (of samba server) is
not opening from client PC (Intel based XPSP3) if I set "server
signing=auto" and "client signing=auto".

My windows Based Client security setting are as below (I have uploaded
screenshot also)
Microsoft network client : Digitally sign communication (always)				Disabled
Microsoft network client : Digitally sign communication (if server agrees)	

I am not sure is this issue is same as Bugzilla bug #8212 where Shirish-Sir
has given patch in cifs.ko for below setting 
	server signing = mandatory
	client signing = mandatory
	client use spnego = yes

However My setting are auto signing (negotiation based).

I have teken samba server logs and network capture and uploaded the same in
below link

My environment details are
Windows Client XPSP3 name (tec-99000478-01) []
Samba Server (3.5.8/9/10) Fedora 14 PC []
Configuration file smb.conf (uploaded in attached link)

**I downgraded my samba to very old version ~3.3.15 and found auto  server
signing is working fine [keeping environment and conf file same].

Please let me know if latest samba has any modification specific to this
issue. Please correct me If I am missing some setting.

Again thank you for samba team's help.
