The network redirector update prevents Win95 clients from
downgrading to plain text passwords. I think we've already
covered this in this thread (sorry I came in late).
The original problem was that newer Windows 9x clients
could not connect while older ones could. The authentication
was handled by an NT PDC. However, I did not find how
there Samba box was setup. What is the security setting
(user, domain, server)? I do know that you said password
encryption was enabled in smb.conf.
'updated encrypted' is turned off right?
Need more info (and coffee)....
