Hello all!

After studying the Mailing List Archives it seems I am the only one having
problems with this topic...

I have a Samba Server running on Linux and three Win95 Clients (and one
Mac, connected with all this with netatalk...). File and printersharing
works fine, directory browsing, WINS Service, whatsoever. Now I am trying
to get domain logons to work so we come close to the state where everyone
can expect nearly the same environment on any PC.

Short description of the failure: When trying to log on the client shows
only a dialog "The domain password is wrong or access to the logon server
was denied." (Sorry, had to translate back from german to english).

The Log file of nmbd (debug level 4) shows the following:

I think it is something easy I am missing... But what? Anyone any clue?

Yours sincerly, KaDe
