Dear Samba Gurus,
in an effort to improve the security at our site, I wanted to include
the "security = user" feature in the smb.conf file.
The background: Samba 1.9.18p3 running on SGI Octane with Irix 6.4 and
This is what I tried:
security = share --> this works fine but everyone can log as any
other user and destroy sensitive data.
security = domain --> this is not in the man page but also grants
access to the UNIX accounts
security = user --> a little window pops up in the Win9x machine,
asking the user to supply a password to make the connection to the
resource \\SambaServer\IP$. If the user enters the same password (s)he
uses for her/his UNIX account, am error message telling that the
password typed is incorrect; believe me, it is NOT true ;-)
Has anybody faced/solved this problem before??
Thanks in advance for your time!
