Sorry for relpying so late, but I haven't had the time
to do futher tests in the meantime.

For me it looks also very heavy like a VC5++ or even a NT Problem.
But let me report the results of further tests today:

The NT User installed his NT4.0 SP3 workstation from scratch today,
and installed VC5++.

Server runs samba1.17alpha4 on linux-2.0.29.

Result: VC5++ wont work - doesn't find local dll's, illegal Instruction traps -
same as reported in the first mail.

2) Server downgraded to  samba1.16p9: (nothing altered on the NT workstation!)

Result: VC5++ works.

Will test that when I have the time - sorry at the moment.

Could be - but I think the User has'nt done anything unusual.

Can you send me the relevant parts of your smb.conf ?

At the moment I suspect a configuration problem - please see my smb.conf below.

Will do that as time allows.

I also noted that domain logons from win 95 here has some problems with

1) net time /set /yes
   in the login script stops working - reports something like "no server found"

2) Roving profiles stops working:

"Couldn't write to \\<sambaserver>\NOBODY\...." win 95 report's on login and
logout - but I are authenticated as a known user.

Again I suspect my smb.conf for samba1.17alpha4 - please have a look at it.

Thanks for any further help/ideas on the things above.
Thanks for any further work.
