Unfortunately, we added workgroup cross-subnet browsing with samba as
both a local master browser and a domain master browser. I'm only
doing NT workstations and NT server -- no Win95.

In order to get the cross-subnet browsing to work, we had to use ...

	domain logons = yes
	security = user
	encrypt passwords = yes

Everything works OK, but (actually BUT, as in big problem) we cannot
access the samba server.  We get the Enter Network Password from NT
with the message ...

	"Incorrect password or unknown username for:

		\\<samba server>

No amount of entering "correct" usernames and/or passwords provokes
any sort of success. Frustration! 

We can use smbclient and access the NT resources in the workgroup. 

Our verion is Samba 1.9.18p2. Help!
