password server

Can anyone explain what is going on here? I have compiled and
installalled samba on an HP-UX server. The HP box shows up in the
browser and can be accessed by Win95 clients. However connects by WINNT
clients are rejected. Figuring this might have something to do with
encrypted passwords I have compiled and installed the des library with
no problems. The WINNT boxes can now connect BUT only if I use the
smbpasswd utility to make a password for each user. I was hoping to have
the HP-UX box TRANSPARENTLY rverify users and passwords against the
windows NT domain.
For this reason I set the smb.conf file as:

Workgroup = SPC
	wins server =
	domain logons = no
	domain controller = no
	password server =
	security = server
	encrypt passwords = yes
	revalidate = no
	domain master = no
	local master = no
	guest ok = no
	writable = yes

BUT every time a connection is attemptesd I see the following messages

negprot w/password server as 2625merou rejected the session not connected

WHY is requin refusing the password verification connection from the
HP-UX box? How can I get the passwords verified by the WindowsNT
(requin) server so that I dont have to keep smbpasswd up to date?
Incidentally is a BDC - does that matter?
