     Does anybody have the same problem?
     I'm testing out samba-1.9.18p3 on a Solaris2.6 box and am having the
     following problem:
     When I try to map my home directory on a Win95 machine, its fails to
     authenticate the password.
     I have tried the following without success
     1. Ran the vrdrupd.exe without setting EnablePlainTextPassword to 1
     2. Set EnablePlainTextPassword to 1 after running vrdrupd.exe
     For both 1 and 2, encrypt passwords is not set and security = user
     3. Set encrypt passwords = yes and set up the file 
     /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd for myself.
     On an older version samba-1.9.16p11, Win95 works fine when I set 
     EnablePlainTextPassword to 1.
     Both versions work fine for WinNT machines.
     Thanks ahead for any insight or help.
