Hi Kai,

Thanks for your response. I am new to samba so I just posted.

But same conf file( smb.conf) is working fine with version samba 3.0.27 and
samba 3.4.3.

In this specific case however, I think the issue is your config.

I highly doubt Win7 still supports win95-style unencrypted connections.
Try with encrypt passwords = yes and possibly security = user.
Depending on how you want authentication to work, you might need to set the
map to guest parameter as well, have a look at the smb.conf documentation
for the values you can set that parameter to.

Also, this question would be more appropriate to the samba user list, not
the samba-technical list.
