I've spend some time to figured out wath is wrong with Samba 2.0.0 and
why smbclient not working wiht right password:
1) In Samba 2.0.0 you have to enable the UserAccound,
before you will access it with smbclient!
Syntax: "smbpasswd -e user"
2) Maybe you have to add "localhost" to (host allow) in [global] in
Syntax: "host allow = 129.187.200., localhost"
3) Syntax to call smbclient:
"smbclient //myPC/user -U user"
4) If your system uses Shadow Passwords:
You have to compile the Samba-suite with "-Wshadow".
I hope it will help...
