Well, that sounds encouraging...

I don't get any further lines in the log file after the ones I posted the
other day, so I am guessing my chat script is wrong. (I am asuming the
chat script you are refering to is the passwd chat section of smb.conf).
If this is what you are refering to, then that was also included in my
previous message. If this isn't what you are refering to, then I think I
may have missed something.

Is it possible to get you to pass on the chat options you use.
