NT service problem

I hope this is the correct place to ask questions ...
I'm having the following problem :
A "service" on an NT 4 server cannot connect to a samba
share on my linux machine. The specific versions are given
below. From the NT machine I have no problem as the administrator
to login to samba server and view the target share. The
supplier's service however cannot seem to do the same. The
service does have a config for a user/password but as it gives
no verbose error message I am stuck. Also the supplier(Bentley)
is about as useful as the IRS - in their opinion I should be
using NT and that's the end of the story. I disagree :)
The service starts automatically at boot time but even if I
stop and then restart it after I have logged into the share
I have no luck.
Does anyone have any ideas ? From what I have gleamed from the
John Blair book I have setup share level authentication. I have
also applied the patch to NT to use plaintext passwords.
Here are the specifics :
- NT 4 SP3
- Linux 2.0.36 with samba 2.0.4 with the following config :
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from spitfire.cn.ca (18.104.22.168)
# Date: 1999/07/31 08:57:42
# Global parameters
workgroup = CAD
comment = Access for the NT server
path = /
valid users = bentley
read only = No
The service attempts to connect as the user bentley ...
Any help would be appreciated.
