Here's the scenario;
I have both Win95 and WinNT systems seeing the Samba Server with no problems.
The problem is when logging in it always wants the root password of the Samba
Server. From the Win95 box it displays the following:
I thought Samba is supposed to grab the username from which that person logged
I went to all machines and sure enough it wants the root password in order to
entrance. How can I change this behavior so that when it asks for a password it
show something like the following:
where "FOOBAR" is the username? Even from an NT Box I type in another username
its legitimate password, but it still insists on the root password. I've setup
encryption on the system. I'm using the "smbpasswd" utility to generate
though I know I can use the mksmbpasswd.sh script.
YOUR HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. TIA.
