Password Error

I just installed Samba version (Samba 1.9.17p5) on my Sun workstation running
SunOS 4.1.4 operating system.  I tested everything on the unix side and it 
seems to be working fine.  The problem that I'm having is with the password.

I'm getting an error message when I tried to login from my NT to my unix box.
Below are the commands I used and error message that I received:

c:\> net use x: \\slinky\bvue (I entered Return)
The password is invalid for \\slinky\bvue. (This is the message from the console.)

Type the password for \\slinky\bvue: (I entered my unix password)
System error 1240 has occurred.  (This is the message from the console.)

The account is not authorized to login from this station.  (This is the message from the console.)


Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated?  Also, the username and password on my NT
box is exactly the same as the one on the unix.
